Iconic Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar today congratulated young teenage cricketer Pranav Dhanawade for smashing an unbeaten 1009 in an inter-school tournament in Mumbai.
The master-blaster appreciated the 15-year-old boy for his achievement and called on him to work harder in order to reach new heights.
“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!,” Sachin tweeted.

Dhanawade smashed a whopping 129 fours and 59 sixes during his epic knock which ended when his school declared at 1465 for three at stumps on day two, which is also a world record.
Son of an autorickshaw driver, Dhanawade now holds the record for the highest individual score in any form of cricket, bettering AEJ Collins’ 628 not out for Clark’s House against North Town in 1899 in the UK.
