Hold your breath for what is about to come….at first this may also be hard to believe but yes what we are stating is 100% true. India’s U/19 player Mayank Rawat today broke the norms of normality and indulged in a stunning knock which may take really some time for the normal people to digest!
Yes Mayank Rawat smashed a triple century…while that is alone worth accolades but that is not the reason he is in news for. Mayank Rawat scored a tripe hundred in a 40-over game and that too in mere 86balls. Freak, wild, aggression, brutal, immensely talented are some of the hashtags you can attach with this boy who has simply broke all the records in cricket on 21.07.2017 representing Ajmal Khan Cricket Academy and facing SKCC in the Gaikwad U/19 Trophy.
We at Cricketgraph spoke with Mayank and asked him in what zone was he that this happened & these were his excerpts- “I usually bat like this only and this is also my natural game..felt really amazing to score runs like this..plus the wicket was extremely good to bat on and luckily I was able to hit the ball nicely today. I was recently dropped from the U/19 National team but certainly working hard to make a comeback” and we also certainly believe he will be donning the national cap soon.
Played today at the Rajokri Cricket Ground, it was AKCC (Ajmal Khan Academy) who won the toss & elected to bat first. Well the SKCC boys were completely unaware of what was about to come as AKCC piled up a record 586/4 in 35overs. Yes 586 runs in just 210balls and thanks to this right-handed Mayank Rawat who scored 309 at a strike rate of more than 320 and smashing a record number of 37 mammoth sixes and just 16boundaries to completely destroy the opposition. Mayank was dealing in boundaries so easily that at one point it looked like as if he was just doing some batting practice. Also we must not forget another right handed batsman Ritik kanojia who also smashed one of the fastest local hundreds of Delhi. Ritik smashed 100 off mere 28balls wherein he smashed 12sixes and 6fours. Both the players certainly gave nightmares to the bowlers which will take really a lot of time for them to forget the carnage.
In reply, SKCC were all out for 198/10 in 26overs where in Sunny and Rishi were the highest scorers with 51 & 48 respectively while Sanchit, Mohit & Siddarth took 3wkts each. AKCC won the match by a record 388 runs & for obvious reasons Mayank Rawat was declared ‘man of the match’.

- Highest Individual score in India as well as around the world in a limited overs game.
- Highest number of sixes in a single innings in any format or level of the game(37sixes)
