An Indian schoolboy has become an internet sensation after scoring 1,009 runs in ONE INNINGS!
You could say 15-year-old Pranav Dhanawade was fairly handy with the bat playing for KC Gandhi in an inter-school tournament this week.
He struck 652 runs in just 199 balls yesterday, passing the previous best in minor cricket, set by Arthur Collins' 628 in 1899.
It also beat the record Indian school knock of 546 by Prithvi Shaw in 2013-14.
Resuming his innings this morning, the teen reached 1009 not out in 323 balls, hitting 59 sixes and 129 fours.
After yesterday's effort, Dhanawade told the Hindustan Times: “I have always been a big-hitter.
“When I started I never thought about breaking the record. The focus was never that. I just played my natural game, which is to attack from the word go.
“After reaching 300, my coach Harish Sharma told me to play on. I did not know of the world record, but we had the Indian record [Shaw's 546] in mind.”
