A one-of-its-kind cricket match took place during the inter-school Harris Shield (under-16) tournament in Mumbai.
In a match played on 20th November, one team managed to score 761 runs in the first innings. However, the team which was supposed to chase the score only managed to make 7 runs in just 6 overs. Moreover, all the runs were added to the scorecard as extras. This means none of the batsmen was able to score even a single run. All of them got out for ducks.
The match was between the Swami Vivekanand International School (Borivali) and Children’s Academy (Andheri). Vivekanand International batted first and scored 761runs (for 4) in 39 overs. The Children’s Academy team was unable to throw the remaining 6 overs in the given time limit. This is why they were given a penalty of 156 runs.
During this innings, SVIS’s Meet Mayekar scored the most number of runs-338 off 134 balls. The player managed to hit 56 fours and 7 sixes. Team India’s star opener batsman Rohit Sharma is an ex-student of Vivekanand International School.
A number of cricketers have gained recognition after playing well during the Harris Shield Tournament. It was during the tournament that the historical partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli was formed!
