Essex all-rounder Graham Napier struck a new Twenty20 world record 16 sixes in an innings on his way to 152 not out as Sussex were thrashed by 128 runs at Chelmsford on Wednesday.

Napier's 58-ball knock, which also featured 10 fours, was a record score for England's domestic Twenty20 Cup.

It was second only to New Zealander Brendon McCullum's unbeaten 158 in all Twenty20 cricket.

The 28-year-old Essex-born Napier's innings helped his side to 242 for three, a target which proved beyond Sussex who were bowled out for 114.

"It was awesome, fantastic," Napier told Sky Sports. "I just started to see the ball better, middled one or two and then got into a rhythm."
