Tendulkar congratulates Dhanawade for record-breaking innings

Mumbai, Jan 5 (IANS) Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to congratulate local school cricketer Pranav Dhanawade for his record-breaking innings of 1,009 not out in an H.T. Bhandari Cup Under-16 inter-school cricket tournament clash.

“Congrats #PranavDhanawade on being the first ever to score 1000 runs in an innings. Well done and work hard. You need to scale new peaks!,” Tendulkar posted on his Twitter handle.

The tournament is being organised by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) for the benefit of suburban schools.

Pranav’s epic 323-ball knock consisted of a staggering 59 sixes and 129 fours. His team, K.C. Gandhi High School, declared their innings at 1,465 for 6 with Pranav remaining unbeaten at 1,009.

He batted for 395 minutes and had a strike rate of 312.38.

The youngster broke a 116-year-old record after surpassing 652 on Monday, thus taking over the reins of the highest individual score (including minor cricket) from A.E.J. Collins of England.
