The names are - B Manoj Kumar and Md. Shaibaz Tumbi. They are 13 year olds, belong to St Peter's High School and when they came out to bat against St Philips High School on Wednesday morning in a inter-school 40 over match (Bro John of God Trophy), carried their bat for a partnership of 721, making 320 (127 balls) and 324 (116 balls) respectively and broke the partnership record of 664 made by Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli in February 1988 - Manoj Kumar and Shaibaz Tumbi weren't even born then.
According to Mohandas Mennon - the former Team India statistician, this feet (triple centuries by both) of hyderabad boys gives them the World record of highest total, highest pernership and highest margin of victory - as their opponent were bowled out for just 21 with Mohammad Akram taking 7 wickets for 11 runs.
It must be noted that the match Vinod Kambli and Sachin Tendulkar were playing was a two day match and this one was just a 40 over per side match. Another notable difference was that there was not a single six hit in this Manoj-Shaibaz partnership - may be because Parade Ground in Secunderabad is little too big for these 13 year old hands.
The record of highest innings total in a one day match was 630 for 5 in 45 overs by United Cricket Club against Bay Area in a league match in California, USA but that has been broken.
The record for highest partnership in an International match is 624 by Maleha Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara against South Africa, whereas the highest One day International score is 443 for 9 by Sri Lanka against Netherlands.
