Sachin's world record score-sheet burnt

Mumbai, Feb 27: In what can be termed as shocking, the score-sheet of the world record partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli for their school, has been obliterated.

It was in this historic match on February 24, 1988 that two school boys - Tendulkar and Kambli smashed the record for partnership for any wicket in anywhere in the world.

The duo batted together for 664-run association for Sharadashram Vidyamandir School. It came in a Harris Shield game against St Xavier's in the tournament organised by the Mumbai School Sports Association (MSSA).

Today, that historic feat's original score-sheet has been incinerated by MSSA, according to a report published in "Hindustan Times" newspaper on Wednesday.

The reason given by MSSA is lack of space to store this score-sheet. It was one of the documents along with others, incinerated. And they consider it to be like any other game's score-sheet.

"The score-sheet was kept along with all the other records of games, and has since been incinerated as we could not store them all. You cannot expect us to store files that are 25 years old," the newspaper quoted MSSA cricket secretary HS Bhor as saying.

He added: "the score-sheet was like a sheet from any other match."
