It will be a bit too early to consider him as the next Brian Lara, but 14-year-old Kirstan Kallicharan is on the right path, scoring an unbelievable 404 not out in Trinidad.

Captain of the Trinidad and Tobago Under-15 team, Kallicharan posted the mammoth total for school side Vishnu Boys Hindu College, belting his century from only 35 balls.

Kallicharan looked like he wasn’t interested in running, as he hit a ridiculous 44 fours and 31 sixes. That’s 362 runs in boundaries.

And what makes it even more remarkable (if 404 not out isn’t enough), the match was off 35 overs each; Kallicharan scoring at more than 10 runs per over by himself to lead Vishnu to 1-548.

In what must be one of the most one-sided victories in history, his team bowled out opponents Valencia High School for 89 to win by a staggering 459 runs.

You might think the achievement could go to the head of the young man, but Kallicharan said it was just like any other game.

At the beginning I was just batting normal, just aiming to make a hundred but when I got to my century I realised I could score more and more and I just continued to bat,” Kallicharan told the Trinidad Express.

I am not over-reacting about it. I am just feeling happy I reached there. I am staying focused.

Having already scored a double century earlier in the season, Kallicharan’s coach Tarandath Sammy is keeping a lid on the exciting prospect of this future talent.

He had dominated the Under-13 level and the Under-15 level last year. It is remarkable but we are not reading too much into it,” said Sammy.

Before the game, we were discussing the batting order and I asked him if he wanted to open the batting, but he said he wanted to give the other boys a chance.
