A UNIVERSITY cricket team hopes its 30-hour charity game will see it become a world record-holder.
The team, from the University of Portsmouth, completed the indoor match which lasted 30hrs 39mins and 27secs.
The current record is 25hrs 59 mins and was set by a South African club team in 2014.
A video of the entire match plus photographs have been sent to Guinness World Records as evidence. Cricket club president Jack Maciver said: ‘The record attempt went really well, and we received good support throughout the attempt.
‘We were delighted that we managed to play for so long - hopefully it won’t be too long before we’re declared the new record-holders.’
The match was raising money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Jack added: ‘It’s a great cause and means a lot to a couple of our members, as it has helped people close to them.’
The record attempt was held at the university’s Spinnaker Sports Centre.
