 Fifteen-year-old Pranav Dhanawade from Mumbai became the first ever batsman in cricketing history, spanning nearly 250 years, to register a score of 1000+ runs in a single innings. He scored 1,009 not out from 327 balls for KC Gandhi High School, Kalyan in a match against Arya Gurukul School, in just one innings, stretching over two days, in Mumbai’s HT Bhandari Cup inter-school tournament from Jan 4-5, 2016. In the process he broke a 116-year-old record of 628 not out, set by an English schoolboy James “AEJ” Collins in June 1899. On the opening day,Dhanawade also surpassed the record for the highest individual score by an Indian cricketer in minor cricket, previously held by Prithvi Shaw, who scored 546 in the Harris Shield in 2013-14. On day two of their first innings, with only 5 of 11 players having batted, the KC Gandhi side declared at 1,465 for 3 wickets, which is also another world record, for the most runs scored by a side in a match. For the record, with the opposition, Arya Gurukul School, making just 31 runs in their first innings and 52 in their second, to lose the game by an innings and 1,382 runs set another world record for the highest margin of victory every recorded in any form of cricket!
