Two junior cricketers from Hyderabad created history when they added a world-record 721 runs in 40 overs to eclipse the 664-run stand between Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli set in 1987-88 (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/columns/content/story/135328.html). The St Peter's School openers B Manoj Kumar and Mohammed Shaibaaz Tumbi, both 13, hit an unbeaten 320 and 324 respectively in the Hyderabad Cricket Association Inter-School Under-13 tournament on Wednesday.

Statisticians say that three records were broken during their run-blitz: highest total, highest stand and highest margin of victory - in any form of limited-overs cricket at any level.

The run riot came against a hapless St Philip's High School, which was bundled out for a paltry score of 21.
