Sportacus strikes...

Carrying on from today's earlier Sportacus post below, this just in. It seems that the superhero has struck already!

Two Indian schoolboys have shared an unbeaten 721-run stand, breaking the schools cricket record set by Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambi, the Press Trust of India have reported. B Manoj Kumar and Mohamed Shaibaaz, playing in an under-13's tournament in Hyderabad, got triple centuries for St. Peter's High School against St. Phillip's High School to beat the previous 664-run mark, PTI said. Opening the innings, Manoj cracked 320 off 127 balls including 46 fours, as Shaibaaz smashed 324 including 67 boundaries. St. Phillips were dismissed for 21. Tendulkar and former India international Kambli racked up their partnership in 1987-88 for Shardashram School in Mumbai.
