Pranav Dhanawade recorded the feat yesterday in a school game near Mumbai
15-year-old Pranav Dhanawade has become the first player in the history of cricket to score more than 1,000 runs in a single innings.
Dhanawade scored 1009 not out which included 59 sixes and 129 fours. He was at the crease for five and a half hours, and faced less than 350 balls. His KC Gandhi School declared on 1,465-3 after lunch on Day 2 of their game.
