Ayaz Memon heaps praises Pranav Dhanawade for world record
Dhanawade obliterated a 117-year-old record for the highest number of runs scored in one innings.
Ayaz Memon heaped praises for Pranav Dhanawade after the latter scored a 1000 runs in one day. The leading Indian cricket expert said it would be a phenomenal feat for any cricketer to score four digits at any level of the game. "It's just incredible. Scoring 1,000 runs in less than two days at this speed is a great achievement," Memon told AFP. But translating this accomplishment from club to international level will be a big challenge for the teenager, he said. A Mumbai schoolboy made history on Tuesday when he sensationally became the first ever batsman in any class of cricket to score 1,000 runs in a single innings.

Fifteen-year-old Dhanawade smashed his way to 1,009 not out off 323 balls as he obliterated a 117-year-old record for the highest number of runs scored in one innings.
The record will get his tuition and educational expeneses reimbursed . The Maharashtra government has stepped in to help probably one of the finest prodigies destined for batting stardom in India. Pranav does not hails from a privileged background. His father is an auto rickshaw driver. Maharashtra government stepping in to help a budding talent like him is laudatory.
Dhanawade soared past Arthur Collins' previous record total of 628 in England in 1899, during an inter-school tournament in the western Indian city. READ: Pranav Dhanawade congratulated by Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh among others
"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!" Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar posted on Twitter.
Dhanawade's epic knock included 129 fours and 59 sixes. It ended when his school declared on 1,465. The school tournament was recognised as an official innings by the Mumbai Cricket Association.
