The world record for throwing a cricket ball stands at 128.6metres - that's an incredible 140 yards and two feet.

And this season on Cricket AM, we're going to try and find somebody to break that record.

We'll be challenging professional sportsmen from a variety of sports try to throw a cricket ball further than it has ever been thrown before, but will any of them be able to make the distance?

Find out how they got on in the table below and catch up with any episodes you may have missed.
