Watch as the #48hrnet gets underway in Sleaford and Matthew Hoggard bowls to Dave Newman and Richard Wells as they begin their bid to raise £10,000 for Brain Tumour Research.
In this video, we also hear from Ian Watson from Brain Tumour Research and Wayne Chessum, who survived a brain tumour and plays at the same club - Billingborough CC - as Dave and Richard.
Hoggard bowled the opening ball and played a major role in the event as the Global Cricket Community Ambassador for Joinin.
Dave and Richard were also helped out by a team of volunteers and pending verification from Guinness, they have smashed the previous world record of 26 hours.
