1009* at fifteen 

Pranav Dhanawade, son of an Auto rickshaw driver at the age of fifteen became the highest run-scorer with his 1,009*. This is the first four digit score by an individual in an official match, surpassing 13 year old Arthur Collins’ 628 in a house match in England in 1899. Dhanawade is a student of Class 10 of KC Gandhi School, Kalyan. He achieved the feat against Arya Gurukul, Kalyan, in a district inter-school tournament for HT Bhandari Shield organised by the Mumbai Cricket Association.

He achieved this in a batting time of 6 hours, 35 minutes, Pranav faced 323 balls and hit 59 sixes and 129 fours with a strike rate of 312.38. Mumbai Cricket Association has announced a monthly scholarship of Rs. 10000 each to Pranav Dhanawade.

Haven’t you heard people crying about what they do not have? “I’m too old.” “I’m too young.” “I’m not educated.” “My parents are poor.” “I’m from the backward class” “I can never make it.” “I feel nervous.” “I could never do that.” A winner is someone who recognizes his talents, works his tail off to develop them, and uses them to achieve his goals and brings happiness to others. An unquenchable desire to achieve and succeed has enabled many individuals to accomplish what was well beyond their wildest dreams. Unceasing hard work, strenuous labour and practice give you success no matter your background.
