Mumbai teenager Prithvi Shaw created a national record on hitting an astonishing 546 playing for Rizvi Springfield against St Francis D'Assisi Borivali in an inter-school match for the prestigious Harris Shield in Mumbai.

His memorable quintuple knock of 546 included 85 boundaries and 5 sixes. The previous record was held by Armaan Jaffer who had made 498 in Harris Shield. It turns out to be the highest score in any class of cricket after 628*made by  AEJ Collins in 1899 & 566 CJ Eady in 1901.

The Rizvi Education Society (RES) has awarded free education for Prithvi. Dr Akhtar Hasan Rizvi, the chairman of RES has also announced a cash prize of one lakh for the batsman.
