14-yr-old Prithvi Shaw slams stunning 546 in Harris Shield

Prithvi Shaw is already well-known in cricketing circles in Mumbai, but his knock of 546 is certain to take his fame to another level. It is now the highest score by a batsman in the tournament. The previous record was Armaan Jaffer's 473.

Playing in the Harris Shield in Mumbai, Shaw slammed a quintuple century today — the 14-year-old from Rizvi Springfield was not out on 257 at stumps on Tuesday.
