All XI players get out for zero in Harris Shield
In a bizarre incident, a school team participating in the U-16 Harris Shield first round knockout match was bowled out for seven runs. Notably, all XI players were dismissed for zero as the side lost by 754 runs. This record was scripted in the match between Children's Welfare School and Swami Vivekanand International School, Borivali. Here's more.
Children's Welfare were saved by extras (six wides and a bye). The side was bowled out within 36 balls. Medium-pacer Alok Pal was the chief architect for SVIS with a tally of 6/3 in three. His six-for stunned one and all. Pal was helped by skipper Varod Vaze (2/3). Meanwhile, two other batsmen were dismissed run-out.

The Swami Vivekanand International School, Borivali, is regarded as one of the prestigious schools, in the city. The team had piled up 761/4 in 39 overs at the New Era ground in Azad Maidan. Number three batsman Meet Mayekar was unbeaten on 338 off 134 balls. He slammed seven sixes and 56 fours. Krishna Parte (95) and Ishan Roy (67) notched impressive knocks.
SVIS were helped by a 156-run penalty imposed on Children's Welfare bowlers, who were six overs short in a stipulated three-hour time. The side was supposed to bowl 45 overs in this period.
It was a happy day for SVIS coach Mahesh Lotilkar, who saw his team dominate, despite being without regular-skipper Ayush Jetha and two other top players. They were with the Mumbai U-16 camp. "It was one of those days when we were outstanding in all the departments. I don't want the boys to relax after this massive win," he told The Times of India.
