Teenager Pranav Dhanawade has scored 1,000 runs in an innings, according to the Indian media

Reports say that the 15-year-old Mumbai schoolboy finished on 1,009 not out while batting for KC Gandhi School in the Bhandri Cup inter-school tournament.

His runs came from only 323 balls, with his team declaring on 1465 for two. He scored 129 fours and 59 sixes during the innings.

His knock - against Arya Gurukul School - helped him surpass the 628 scored by Englishman Arthur Collins in 1899.

Historical scorecards show that Collins - born in India himself - scored 628 of Clark's House's 836 all out against North Town at Clifton College, where a plaque remains to this day commemorating the innings.
