A 13-year-old Yash Chawde became the first Indian player to score 500+ runs in a limited-overs match at any level. Overall, he is the second cricketer after Sri Lanka’s Danidu Selleperuma.
He accumulated 508* off 178 balls for Saraswati Vidyalaya against Siddheshwar Vidyalaya at the under-15 level in Nagpur. The young batter hit 81 fours and 18 sixes.
He is the 10th batter in cricket history to score over 500 runs. Chawde also broke the record for the highest partnership, amassing 714 runs in 40 overs alongside fellow batter Tilak Wakode (127 from 97 balls).
13-year-old Yash Chawde has been a top performer in the U-16 VCA tournament this season, where he has smoked 1000 runs and two centuries. He is the son of a mid-day meal contractor and was guided towards cricket by his father.
Chawde’s first love is not cricket. Instead, he likes skating and has participated in state and national tournaments in this sport.
