In what we can call as an unbelievable feat, A 15-year-old Mumbai schoolboy scored 1,009 runs without getting out, becoming the first batsman in history to make 1,000 runs in any form of the game. Pranav Dhanawade’s incredible feat came in an innings for his school side KC Gandhi, against Arya Gurukul in the under-16 HT Bhandari Cup inter-school tournament organized by the Mumbi Cricket Association. The majestic knock came off just 323 balls and featured 127 fours and 59 sixes.
Praises started to pour in from all corners to this young lad and as expected even Twitter satire handles had it’s day. Here are some of the funny tweets.
The first endorsement bagged by Pranav.

Exclusive clip from the match.
Still few fielders short.
We hope this revelation doesn’t take sheen off boy’s achievement.

Waiting for Kapil Dev to criticize him after Sachin.
If Pranav Dhanawade had done justice to his talent, he could have scored 2000 runs~ Kapil Dev

But shouldn’t he be excelling somewhere else?
Surprised to see Pranav Dhanawade scoring 1009 runs in an innings, being an auto driver's son he should've topped IIT-JEE instead
