Mumbai: The cricketing world was taken aback by the incredible innings of the 13-year-old girl. Yash Chowde became a star by scoring 508 runs without getting out as the opener in the 40 over match. Yash, who was a skating star, joined cricket just three years ago on his father’s advice. Yash’s father Shravan can be proud that his decision was right.
The star’s stunning batting for Saraswati Vidyalaya in the Mumbai Indians Junior Inter-Schools (U-14) tournament. Yash also held an Indian record for the highest individual score by a player in a limited overs event in an inter-school tournament. Many records including this one were born in the competition.
Yash’s dream innings consisted of 81 fours and 18 sixes from just 178 balls. Fellow opener Tilak Wakode remained unbeaten on 127 off 97 balls. Both of them gave the team a huge score of 714 runs without losing a wicket. The partnership between the two also set the record for the best opening partnership.
In the competition, Yash and his team faced Siddheshwar Vidyalaya. In response, Siddeshwar Vidyalaya were bowled out for just nine runs in five overs. Saraswati Vidyalaya posted a record victory of 705 runs.
