5 Astonishing Records in Domestic Cricket
5 Astonishing Records in Domestic Cricket; Domestic cricket often holds an essential role in shaping a cricketer’s career. All the legendary players, who are being honoured with various labels now, had all once played the domestic cricket. However, we came across numerous records getting broken in the international cricket, but there are few records in the domestic cricket which are yet to be achieved in the international cricket.
Here are the 5 Astonishing records in Domestic Cricket:
5. Two Indian School boys stitched 721-run partnership in Domestic Cricket:
Isn’t it scintillating to hear about two batsmen paring up to stitch a 721-run partnership in cricket? Yes, it happened in India when the two young boys from St Peter’s High School, Hyderabad batted for hours together.
The duo broke the 20-year-old record that was on the name of Indian great, Sachin Tendulkar alongside his friend, Vinod Kambli. The incident took place when they were playing a 40-over one day game against St Phillip High School in the inter-school Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) league.
Mohammad Shahbaz Tumbi knocked an unbeaten 324* to his name while B Manoj Kumar scored 320*. It was a stunning show by the duo, who received the accolades across India for their effort.
4. A Ranji Trophy match aggregated the total of 2376 runs:
Turning the clock back to 1949-50, the game between Bombay and Maharashtra saw the run feast. Both the teams were never tired out in scoring the runs, who ended up registering 2376 combinedly.
Initially, Bombay managed to score 651 runs by batting first on the pure batting wicket. In reply, Manohar Datta’s 143 helped Maharashtra to score 407 runs on the board. Taking the lead of 244, Bombay added 715 runs to put a massive 959-run target on the board.
While chasing the tally, Maharashtra put a spirited performance at the store by knocking 604 runs to their name. All in all, they aggregated 2376 runs in total to top the list of highest aggregates in the domestic match. It is yet to get broken. Perhaps, never will happen.
3. A team all-out for just six runs:
It was a match that played between the All England XI and the BS XI team in 1810. However, it was a forgettable match for BS team, as they were rolled out for just six runs on the board. Isn’t that a weird story?
In total, as many as seven batsmen registered duck while a couple of batsmen scored one run to their name. The highest run-scorer was Jonathan Wells, the number three batsman with four runs to his name
2. Brian Lara’s 501* runs in one inning:
We know that Brian Lara had scored 400 in a Test match, but do you know he had scored 501* in a single game as well? Surprised? But, yes, he made it in the first-class cricket game while playing in a county game.
The stylish southpaw was sensational at that time, who kept the fielders chasing the leather more often than not. The marathon knock came against Durham when he played for Warwickshire in 1994.
Brian Lara Knocked 62 boundaries and ten sixes during his stunning knock. In total, he took 427 balls to achieve the remarkable feat by spending 474 minutes for the inning. Now, you leave about the legend, think about the bowlers and fielders’ toil.
1. 15-year-old Pranav Dhanawade scores a record 1009:
Here comes the astonishing record. Who would expect a single person to score 1000 runs in a single game? We come across cricketers scoring 1000 runs in a calendar year, here Pranav Dhanwade knocked it in a single inning.
He took 323 balls to knock an unbeaten 1009* runs for his team in the school-level tournament. His stunning knock helped KC Gandhi school to amass 1465/3. His inning also helped his school to go past the record of Victoria’s 1107 against New South Wales which made in 1926.
During the course, Pranav broke AEJ Collins’ 116-year-old record of the highest individual score of 628 in 1899 and also surpassed the previous highest Indian individual score of 546 by Prithvi Shaw.
