Pranav Dhanawade, a 15-year-old cricketer from Mumbai, has broken a world record by smashing 1,000 not out, by far the highest individual score in minor cricket, say media reports.

Dhanawade hit an unbelievable 129 boundaries and 59 sixes in his knock of 1009 not out.

Dhanawade had already reached the record on Monday, smashing 652 off 199 balls while representing Smt KC Gandhi School, Kalyan, in  Bhandari Cup inter-school tournament.

Dhanawade broke a 117-year-old record, when he surpassed the score of 628* scored by Arthur Collins in 1899.

“I have always been a big-hitter,” Dhanawade told  on Monday. “When I started I never thought about breaking the record. The focus was never that. I just played my natural game, which is to attack from the word go.
