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.
