Pranav Dhanawade of KC Gandhi School has scored 1009* in 323 balls 

15-year-old Pranav Dhanawade broke almost every record there is to break in the book on Tuesday, registering a score of 1009 not out while playing for his school the KC Gandhi School against Arya Gurukul School. 

As the world woke up to a lazy winter Tuesday, Pranav Dhanawade resumed batting from his already world record score of 652*, aiming to reach the unprecedented 4-figure mark, never before reached in any form of recognized cricket.

Ever since the scores started to flow out, Twitter also joined in the fun, as one saw a spree of tweets related to the exploits of the batsman.

Here are some of the best reactions to Dhanawade’s incredible effort:

Pranav had said before resuming his knock on Tuesday, “I did not know of the world record, but we had the Indian record [Shaw's 546] in mind. Cricket is not an easy sport and expensive too. I spent extra hours driving an autorickshaw in order to afford the cricket gear for my son,” his father had told Sportskeeda earlier.

A call-up to the Mumbai U-16 team is very likely for Pranav now, and we wish him the best of luck for his future endevours.
