Pranav Dhanawade : The Boy Who Scored 1009 runs in a single match

Well not exactly a success story but it was highly inspiring to know about the 15 year old boy who broke a 116 year old record in cricket. 
His name is Pranav Dhanawade. He scored 1009 runs of his own in a single match.

Pranav, whose father drives an autorickshaw, may have grown up in Kalyan, not quite the cricketing artery of Mumbai, only showed coolth and great self-confidence. His nervous father revealed to this reporter that he often worked overtime to provide Pranav two square meals and cricketing gear. Inspired by Prithvi Shaw's Harris Shield feat, Pranav had vowed to his father on Monday that he would get to a score that would be near-impossible to surpass. His unbeaten knock of 1009, an innings laced with 129 fours and 59 sixes off 327 deliveries has forever put Kalyan on the cricketing map.



Salute!
