"In the first round, even though I scored 95, sir scolded me for getting out cheaply and very sternly told me that he wouldn't keep me in the playing XI if I don't perform," said 12-year-old Satyalaksh, whose knock yesterday included 30 fours and three sixes.
Abrail hit 20 boundaries in his knock and is aiming for a triple ton today. "I scored 72 runs in the first round and still got scolded by sir. That inspired me to prove my worth. I'm glad that I scored a double ton today. I hope to score a triple ton tomorrow (Wednesday)," said the 13-year-old.
