In a remarkable display of batting prowess, Prakhar Chaturvedi from Karnataka eclipsed Yuvraj Singh’s 25-year-old record for the highest score in the U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy final. Chaturvedi’s unbeaten innings of 404 off 636 balls against Mumbai surpassed Yuvraj’s 358 for Punjab in 1999, a game in which Indian cricket legend M S Dhoni played for Bihar.

Breaking Records

Chaturvedi’s extraordinary knock featured 46 fours and three sixes, setting a new milestone in the history of the Cooch Behar Trophy. The achievement was acknowledged by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which shared the news on social media, stating, “To achieve a historic milestone, Prakhar Chaturvedi of Karnataka scored an extraordinary 404* in the final of the #CoochBehar Trophy against Mumbai, surpassing the previous record.

Epic Team Total

Contributing significantly to Karnataka’s dominance, Chaturvedi’s innings propelled the team to a colossal total of 890 for eight in response to Mumbai’s 380. The match concluded with a draw, but Karnataka secured the first-innings lead.

Marathon Effort

Harshil Dhamani’s substantial contribution of 179 runs in Karnataka’s innings complemented Chaturvedi’s marathon effort. The game was called off once Chaturvedi crossed the historic 400-run mark, sealing a memorable chapter in U-19 cricket.

Noteworthy Records

While Chaturvedi’s innings broke Yuvraj Singh’s previous record, it’s important to note that the highest individual score in the Cooch Behar Trophy remains Vijay Zol’s exceptional 451 not out for Maharashtra against Assam in the 2011-12 season. Chaturvedi’s feat adds a new chapter to the rich history of India’s premier U-19 domestic cricket event.

In the annals of cricket, these record-breaking performances signify the emergence of young talent and the spirit of competition in age-group cricket, offering a glimpse into the potential future stars of Indian cricket.
