An Indian teenager hit an incredible 556 not out in a two-day U14 match in Baroda.
Priyanshu Moliya set a remarkable personal best for the Mohinder Lala Amarnath Cricket Academy in the Shri DK Gaekwad tournament against Yogi Cricket Academy.
Mentored by former India international Mohinder Amarnath, the youngster struck 98 fours and one six off 319 balls in his side’s whopping 826-4.
Moliya also contributed four wickets to help his side bowled Yogi Academy out for 52 on day one, before his mastery began.
He scored 494 more runs than any other individual in his team, surpassing his previous best of 254 that he made in the same tournament last year.
‘I was just playing my normal game as the bowling attack was good,’ Moliya told Mid-Day. ‘It was a satisfying innings but, yes, I was beaten on four to five occasions.
‘After my first hundred on Monday, I told myself that I need to score 200. I set goals of 100 runs each and was determined to continue playing the same way.’
‘When I saw him for the first time, I knew I was seeing something special. He is a fine talent and he will get better with exposure. I like his passion as well,’ said Amarnath.
Moliya also claimed two second-innings wickets as Yogi were skittled for 84 to lose by an innings and 689 runs.
