It was a ‘grand’ innings by Pranav Dhanawade, literally. The 15-year-old child did something so incomprehensible, so outrageous, one couldn’t even consider it up. Batting for KC Gandhi propagandize at HT Bhandari Cup inter-school cricket tournament, Pranav strike a jaw-dropping 1,009 runs off 323 balls, attack 129 fours and 59 sixes along a way.
He crushed particular measure annals to smithereens. The prior record, hold by AEJ Collins’ 628 not out for for Clark’s House opposite North Town in Clifton College in 1899, was over a hundred years ago.
And in a cricket-crazy country, where an Indian group batsman struggles to hit a 1,000 runs over a season, fans went crazy to see a teen do it in a singular innings! And all of them, fans, cricketers, pundits, rushed to Twitter, as always, to praise a kid’s effort. And some only did what a bona fide Twitterati would do — troll.
If Dhanawade strike a 1,000, Twitter strike a million dollars on a day, and here’s a demeanour during a best of them:
From a master himself
