An Indian school boy named Pranav Dhanawade set a new record of scoring 1000 runs in a school match. He has nailed it by becoming the first batsman in the cricket history to make such a high score of a school match. He achieved this milestone when he was playing from KC Gandhi English high school against Arya Gurukul School in mambai.

He scored 1009 in just 323 deliveries and his innings included 59 sixes and 127 fours. As it was test match so after his smashing bating, KC Gandhi declared at 1465-2 but he was unbeaten.

Dhanawade broke the record of an England cricketer AEJ Collins  who had scored 652 in an innings in 1899. AEJ Collins scored 659 in 199 deliveries and his innings included 30 sixes and 78 fours.

One of the Indian channel said that few years ago while interviewing Dhanawade, he planned for scoring 1000 and thus he achieved it.It was immense pleasure for Dhanawade`s father when he came to know that his son has scored 1009 runs. Dhanawade`s father is a rickshaws driver but he was so happy to know his son`s achievement.   He requested to indian team to support such talented boys who are unable to play more due to financial crisis. He said that it is really difficult for me to buy all the cricket material for the son but  he is looking forward for his son future.
