Young star batsman Pranav Dhanawade smashed 236 runs for Jhunjhunwala College during a 45-over per side inter-college game against the Guru Nanak College at the Cross Maidan, in Mumbai on Thursday. He played the remarkable knock on the eve of the historical second anniversary when he recorded the highest ever score – 1009* runs by a batsman in the history of the game.
Pranav is also returning to the sport after some major drops in confidence and the pressure of living up to the huge expectations and pressure. On January 5, 2016, he played the extraordinary unbeaten knock of 1009 runs during an inter-school cricket match named as HT Bhandari Cup. The talented boy broke many historic records when he stepped on the field that day.
Recently, with his 236-run knock, Pranav guided his team towards a mammoth total of 459 runs, and in response, the opposition team was bowled out for just 60 runs, due to a great spell by Yash Singh who claimed 7 wickets in the match.
Pranav wishes to make a fresh start
After scoring the highest score of 1009 runs, Pranav was granted many opportunities to showcase his talent at higher levels, which includes Rs 10,000 monthly scholarship across five years provided by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). But eventually, he had to let go all that since he failed to live up to all the expectations. During Thursday’s innings, the 17-year-old cricketer announced his return to the game in a stylish and stellar manner.
After the inter-college match, Dhanawade stated that he wishes to make a fresh beginning and is very happy with his progress. He also mentioned that he is not thinking about the future and what will it bring for him. The junior cricketer just wants to enjoy the game of cricket which will lead him forward.
“I am happy. I want to make a fresh beginning. I am not thinking too much about my future; just want to enjoy the game,” he said as quoted by Mid-day.
