The teenager's 540-plus score is the highest school score and has surpassed Armaan Jaffer's previous record of 498 runs which was set in 2010.

On Tuesday, Prithvi cracked a fluent 257 in just 167 balls to help defending champions reach a total of 354-1 against St Francis D’Assisi (Borivli), after they bowled out the Borivli side for 92 in 38 overs earlier in the day. His knock included 44 boundaries and three sixes.

Meanwhile, Shreyas was in no hurry to reach his maiden Harris Shield double ton. His 234-ball knock was laced with 30 boundaries and a six and it helped Raja Shivaji pile on 429-4 against IES Digambar (Dadar).

“Before the match started, sir (Raju Pathak) had told us that we should win the first match with bonus points. After we bowled out the opposition under 100, my aim was to score a century. I am glad I scored a double century,” he said.
