Shaurya Sharan produced an emphatic knock of 158 runs playing a mammoth 202 balls by himself to take Swami Vivekanand International School, Kandivali to victory against IES, Mulund in the Elite division of the Harris Shield.
Batting first, SVIS declared the innings with 352 on the board. This huge total was orchestrated by none other than Shaurya Sharan who batted for almost 6 hours to score his runs. With the middle order collapsing, it was him and skipper Swayam Sail’s responsibility to rescue the sinking ship, and they did. Sail notched up a century of his own, scoring 114 in quick time. Mann Koli scalped 4 wickets for the IES in that innings.
Chasing, IES were bundled up for mere 216 runs as Swayam contributed with the ball as well, picking up 3 wickets. With a healthy lead, SVIS sealed the game with a first innings lead in the 2 day contest.
Shaurya’s incredible innings was the result of him training hours to prepare. Apart from the renowned school of SVIS, Sharan trains at the Winz Cricketgraph Academy in Borivali under Coach Vikrant Gupta.
