15-year-old cricketer scores record 1,009 runs


KAPUR.>>Reporter: THIS IS HOW EASY HE MADE IT LOOK TO CREATE HISTORY. 15-YEAR-OLD PRANAV SCORED 18 RUNS IN AN INTERSCHOOL MATCH. THAT’S A REALLY BIG DEAL IN CRICKET. THEN CAME ANOTHER 100, AND ANOTHER UNTIL HE MADE A WHOPPING 1009 RUNS. THAT’S A WORLD RECORD — NOT JUST FOR SCHOOL CRICKET BUT ANY FORM OF PROFESSIONAL CRICKET. NO ONE HAS EVER COME CLOSE TO A THOUSAND RUNS. HOW DOES IT FEEL?>>I’M VERY TIRED. I’M FEELING HAPPY.>>Reporter: TIRED 23R RELENTLESS MEDIA INTERVIEWS AND THE HERE IS EXHAUSTION OF SO MANY. 327 TO BE PRECISE. YOU’RE A SKINNY GUY, WHERE DO YOU GET THIS ENERGY FROM?>>I’M SKINNY BUT FOR THIS AMOUNT OF STRENGTH, I’M NOT DOING ANY SPECIAL WORK, NO GYM, NO WEIGHTS, I REALLY.>>REALLY.>>Reporter: HE COMES FROM A MODEST BACKGROUND. HIS FATHER DRIVES AN AUTO RICKSHAW AND THEY LIVE IN A TINY HOME IN A SLUM. HIS 1009 HAS PROVED THAT EVERYONE’S EQUAL, HIS FATHER SAYS. THIS IS THE MAGIC OF CRICKET. WHILE WE WERE FILMING, HE RECEIVED A SURPRISE VISITOR CARRYING A SURPRISE GIFT — A CRICKET BAT FROM HIS HERO AND CRICKET LEGEND. >>SEEING THAT BAT, SUCH A BIG PLAYER SENDING THAT BAT, IT’S A BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME.>>Reporter: THE WHOLE HOUSE IS FULL OF FLOURS. >>BECAUSE OF MY SON.>>Reporter: HIS MOTHER IS EXCITED BUT OVERWHELMED. “I WANT HIM TO BE A GOOD CRICKETER. HE SHOULD RISE HIGH BUT KEEP HIS FEET FIRMLY PLANTED ON THE GROUND. THAT’S WHAT I PRAY FOR” SHE SAYS. THERE’S A VERY GOOD REASON FANS AND THE MEDIA TAKE SUCH A KEEN INTEREST IN MUMBAI’S INTERSCHOOL CRICKET MATCHES. THEY’VE PRODUCED CRICKETERS WHO HAVE GONE ON TO BECOME THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD. THEY ALL BEGAN THEIR CAREERS AS TEENAGED BOYS PLAYING INTERSCHOOL CRICKET MATCHES RIGHT

  1. Who is this silly cow taking the interview? She thinks school cricket is something equivalent to Professional cricket..

  2. wat happens if a school intentionally lets it's student to score a 1000runs for publicity. I'm not talking about this video, but in future.

  3. wtf should not be considered as achievement .he was facing 7 and 9 year old children .
    I saw that those bowlers didn't even know how to bowl and they were bowling so slow didn't have pace at all. and he is double their age(bowlers) .so it's not achievement.
    but I appreciate his skills that he batted long time.

  4. ….in stick cricket premier league …..select mumbai mavericks…there is a player named pranav dhanawade………….actually 1000 runs is just enough in to enter a in stick cricket

  5. anyone can score 1000 runs against 7 year old's. this is bullshit. he should compete against 15 or 16 year olds.

  6. NIggas playing against little kids and Indians are getting hyped. Do this in county test cricket and I'll say good

  7. People complaining about his achievement cannot take his credit to stand and deliver i know the ground it is situated in wayle nagar kalyan maharashtra it is not even a ground hardly the size is of tennis court in length and width and yes there where 7 to 10 year children and he was the oldest among them approx double their age but even though he delivered now the point is if he is exceptional and so much talented why we are not getting news about his performance in recent days

  8. What happen to score 1009.bcci is not give to chance and other side arjun Tendulkar is select this is parciality

  9. Senior players had exams. That's why they were replaced by these 8 year old kids. Also the boundary was just 30 yards.
