Karnataka’s Prakhar Chaturvedi made headlines with his staggering innings of 404 not out against Mumbai in the U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy final.

With his unbeaten knock during which he consumed 636 deliveries, Chaturvedi broke a long-standing record for the highest individual score in the Cooch Behar final, which had previously been held by Indian legend Yuvraj Singh.

Yuvraj had smashed 358 for Punjab against Bihar, which had a certain MS Dhoni in its ranks, in the 1999 final and the record had stood ever since, until Chaturvedi became the first to breach the 400-barrier on Monday.

The highest individual score in India’s premier U-19 domestic event is Vijay Zol’s 451 not out for Maharashtra against Assam in 2011-12.

Chaturvedi’s epic effort included 46 fours and three sixes.

“Karnataka’s Prakhar Chaturvedi becomes the first player to score 400 in the final of #CoochBehar Trophy with his splendid 404* knock against Mumbai,” posted the BCCI on X.

Charturvedi’s marathon effort helped Karnataka amass 890 for eight in response to Mumbai’s 380. The game was drawn with Karnataka taking the first innings lead.

Harshil Dhamani scored 179 in Karnataka’s innings. The game was called of once Chaturvedi cross the 400-run mark.
