A 14-year-old student hit an unbeaten 1,045 in a local cricket tournament in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday.

Tanishq Gavate played this knock over two days at the semi-final of the tournament at the Yashwantrao Chavan English Medium School ground in Koparkhairne.

Gavate played on a ground which has a leg-side boundary of 60-65 yards, while the offside boundary was 50 yards, the coach claimed.

His mammoth innings was laced with 149 boundaries and 67 sixes. Gavate played the knock for the Yashwantrao Chavan team, which has been formed by the organisers, against the Yashwantrao Chavan English Medium School.

The organisers are Manish himself and the Yashwantrao Chavan English Medium School.

However, a senior Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) official said that the tournament, titled Navi Mumbai Shield U14, has not been recognised by the MCA. The coach, however, claimed leather ball was used in the tournament and bowlers bowled overarm.
