Australian Blind Cricket Team opening batter Steffan Nero has continued his dominant form at the Commonwealth Bank International Cricket Inclusion Series, scoring 309* off 140 balls against New Zealand in Brisbane on Tuesday.

The triple century breaks the world record of 262* set by Pakistan's Masood Jan at the 1998 Blind Cricket World Cup.

After missing out on a bat in the first match of the series, Nero has scored three consecutive centuries, including 113 (46), 101* (47), and 309* (140). He has scored a total of 523 runs at an average of 523.

Australia finished on a team total of 2/541 (4), defeating the New Zealand 'Blindcaps' by 269 runs at Shaw Park. 

It’s the first time since 2019 that all three Australian squads – blind, deaf, and intellectual disability (ID) – have competed at international level.  

The Australian Blind Cricket Team lead the series against New Zealand 6-0, with two ODIs to be played before the series concludes on Friday.
