    Now for those who didnt play Junior cricket or those that played a long,long time ago, the Rule now states that you must leave the pitch if you score 30 runs or more. This came about because of Ricky Ponting belting the ball all over the park as a junior.Now even he didnt match what these Indian under 13's have done.

    A 700-run win during a limited overs cricket match, and not one six - how's that?

    Indian schoolboys Shahbaz Tumbi and B. Manoj Kumar have not just rewritten, but chewed up and spat out, the record books after scoring a mammoth 721 runs from 40 overs during an under-13s tournament on Wednesday.

    If that wasn't enough, their team, St Peter's High School, went out and bowled the opposition, St Philips High School, for 21 runs, described as a "meagre total" on the Hyderabad Cricket Association website.

    The openers' unheard-of run-rate of more than 18 an over was achieved, remarkably, without either hitting a six. Tumbi scored 324 not out from 116 balls, including 57 boundaries, while Kumar scored at a slightly slower pace, managing 320 not out off 127 balls, featuring 46 fours.

    The 721-run total, during an inter-schools tournament at the Gymkhana Grounds in Secunderabad, eclipses the previous partnership record of 664, held by India's cricketing god Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli.

    It would also take a great deal of concentration to score that many , even in kids cricket.

    How big was the oval? How bad must the bowling have been.

    Fancy winning a 40 over game by 700 runs. Unbeeeeeleeeeivable!
