    Hope these are cliches and U weren’t watching the Big Bash tonight instead of the deciding ODI against India. Especially having the devils number in your name.

    No one, o.k. I'll play by myself (not for the first time).

    Just aim for the top of off.

    Good line and length.

    Straight down his throat.

    Just wish it was a 20/20 rather than a 10/10 game.

    10 overs an innings isn’t enough if you’re gonna have a couple of women in the middle order chewing up precious deliveries.

    And here is an article on it.

    I was warmed to hear he is the son of a rickshaw driver. I would imagine it would be very difficult for a working class kid in India (forget about the slumkids) ever getting a look in - they would need to be scoring triple centuries regularly at school level to get noticed. But imagine what will happen when kids from those backgrounds start getting better opportunities - India will be fucking unstoppable.

    Cricket: Mumbai schoolboy Pranav Dhanawade scores world record 1,000 runs
    Posted 5 JanJanuary 2016, updated 6 JanJanuary 2016

    A Mumbai schoolboy has made history by becoming the first batsman in any class of cricket to score 1,000 runs in a single innings.

    Fifteen-year-old Pranav Dhanawade smashed his way to 1,009 not out off 323 balls as he obliterated a 117-year-old record for the highest number of runs scored in one innings.

    Dhanawade, the son of an auto-rickshaw driver, soared past Arthur Collins' previous record total of 628 in England in 1899 during an inter-school tournament in the western Indian city.

    "Congrats #PranavDhanawade on being the first ever to score 1,000 runs in an innings. Well done and work hard. You need to scale new peaks!" Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar posted on Twitter.

    Dhanawade's epic knock included 129 fours and 59 sixes and came at a phenomenal strike rate of 312.38.

    It ended when his KC Gandhi High School team declared on 1,465 at the ground in Thane, northern Mumbai.

    Their opponents, Arya Gurukul, had been bowled out earlier for just 31, according to the Press Trust of India.

    Dhanawade's innings occurred during the Bhandari Cup school tournament, which is officially recognised by the Mumbai Cricket Association.

    The teenager, who also plays wicket-keeper, surpassed Collins' score on Monday, finishing the day on 652, before crossing the 1,000 mark after lunch on Tuesday.

    "I have always been a big-hitter. When I started I never thought about breaking the record," Dhanawade told the Hindustan Times after his opening-day knock.

    "The focus was never that. I just played my natural game, which is to attack from the word go.

    "After reaching 300, my coach Harish Sharma told me to play on. I did not know of the world record, but we had the Indian record in mind," he added, referring to the previous highest national total of 546.

    Ayaz Memon, a leading Indian cricket expert, said it would be a phenomenal feat for any cricketer to score four digits at any level of the game.

    "It's just incredible. Scoring 1,000 runs in less than two days at this speed is a great achievement," Mr Memon said.

    But translating this accomplishment from club to international level will be a big challenge for the teenager, he said.

    Collins, who himself was born in India, was aged just 13 when he entered the record books for his score at Clifton College in Bristol, where a plaque honours his exploits.

    Why the fuck would they not declare at 500-600
    Really, just a piss take, sounds like this comp needs to take. Ensures to level it up
    If one player can score 1000, what sort of Mickey Mouse competition are the competing in?

    The fact they got bowled out for 50 and 30 is a bit of an indicator about the quality of opposition.

    Still, 1000 runs is 1000 runs. That’s a lot of fucking runs in a single dig!! Good on him.

    A high school one.

    Even if the bowlers were rubbish (which i'm sure they were), for a teenager to keep his concentration up for that long is quite impressive.

    And why declare? Cricket, in additional to being a team sport, is one where we celebrate individual achievement and stats. Team seem to declare too bloody early these days.

    I remember Brian Lara scoring 400 against England, but have to google who ended up winning (it was a drawn for the record).

    Teams declare to early ? They were bowled out for 31 lolololol
    It was a just a joke and a embarrassment to the sport

    Bowling a team out for 31 then batting to 1000+ is a disgrace

    and if they had declared early we would never have seen someone score a thousand runs. Sometimes individual achievement is worth watching.

    I'd imagine in India this kid has now been noticed, where otherwise he would never be. In a country with a billion plus people, and being from a working class background, you'd need yo be scoring double centuries week in week out for anyone to to take notice, that is, by a good cricketing club or school (even if the opposition is rubbish).

    A slow work afternoon has me watching Thailand trying to pull off the biggest upset in sporting history against England in the Womens T20. They are hanging in there, but i'd imagine the collapse won't be far away. Still a great effort for them to be there.

    And speaking of the women's T20, I can't believe people actually think its fine to Mankad someone without warning. Just because you're playing mickey mouse cricket, doesn't mean the sportsmanship that has existed for so long just gets chucked out the window.
