Tanishq was a part of the Yashwantrao Chavan XI in the tournament, a team made up of the players from the academy run by his coach, Manish. Garvate's innings in the semifinals came off 515 balls and that was innings was embellished with 149 boundaries and 67 sixes.
The match was played on the ground where the leg side boundary of 60-65 yards and the off side boundary was 50 yards. The player took two days to score the huge amount of runs and his coach also claimed that in the tournament the players used leather ball and bowlers delivered it overarm.
