Indian schoolboy Pranav Dhanawade has made headlines around the world, after scoring a mammoth 1,009 runs not out in one innings.

The 15-year-old scored an incredible 127 fours and 59 sixes, in an innings that lasted just 323 balls.

His side, KC Gandhi School, eventually declared on 2-1,465 and went on to win the match by 1,382.

The opposition was bowled out for 31 and 52 in their two innings.

The huge individual score easily surpassed what is believed to be the highest ever recorded cricket score of 628, by an Englishman by the name of AEJ Collins in 1899.
