Indian cricket

Forgotten heroes of Harris Shield


The Harris Shield is an inter-school cricket tournament, which has been held in Mumbai since 1897. It is named after Lord Harris, former England captain and governor of Bombay, and is perhaps best known for the 664-run stand in 1988 that brought Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli into the limelight. On Wednesday, 12-year-old Sarfaraz Khan blasted 439, the highest individual score ever made in the tournament. The Indian Express' Devendra Pandey looks up others who made their name in the Harris Shield, before fading into obscurity.
