Pranav Dhanawade, a 15-year-old from Mumbai who earlier broke a record by scoring 652 runs in the Bhandari Trophy, crossed the 1,000-run mark in the same innings on Tuesday, becoming the first cricketer ever to breach the 1,000-run mark.

Dhanawade brought up the knock during an under-16 inter-school match at Union Cricket Academy ground in Kalyan.

On Monday, he broke the 117-year-old record for the most runs scored in an innings held by AEJ Collins, who smashed an unbeaten 628 in a club match in England in 1899.

Naturally, it didn’t take long for Twitter users to react to the 15-year-old’s staggering achievement, with responses ranging from congratulatory to funny. Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and even Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took to the social media platform to congratulate Dhanawade.
