Two awesome 13-year-old Hyderabadi boys have erased the highest batting partnership record that catapulted Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli into cricketing history. The best thing is that the record is staying in India but just moved next door to Andhra Pradesh from Maharashtra.
Triple centuries by openers B. Manoj Kumar (320 not out, 127 balls, 46 x 4) and Md. Shaibaaz Tumbi (324 not out, 116 balls, 57 x 4) saw them race past the previous record of 664 runs scored by Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli for Shardashram School in Mumbai in 1987-88.
In fact, the boys scored in a single day unlike the famous duo, which took three days for the record partnership. "We feel nice to have broken Sachin and Kambli's record," the tired but jubilant 13-year-old, eighth standard students of the Old Bowenpally school exclaimed. [The Hindu]
