Mumbai boy Pranav Dhanawade scores 1000 runs in an innings

A Mumbai teenager has become the first batsman to score 1000 runs in an officially recognized innings.

Pranav Dhanawade, a 15 year old opening batsman, scored 1009 not out playing for K.C.Gandhi School against Arya Gurukul School during the H.T. Bhandari Cup inter-school cricket tournament organised by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). His team declared at 1465-3.

Dhanawade smashed 59 sixes and 129 fours off only 323 balls, making the most of the short 30-yard boundary on one side of the ground.

The previous record in minor cricket — below first-class and List A level — was 628 not out by England's Arthur Collins in 1899.

Mumbai has a tradition of big scores in school cricket. Retired legend Sachin Tendulkar first came to prominence with a 326 not out in 1988.
