There is nothing great in the achievement of this boy against the B grade team which played the march in lieu of the players who were preparing themselves for exam. What was the need of score so many runs when the coach was knowing very well that the opposite team can be bundled out within 50 runs in an inning ? Such coach who are interested in personal achievement and record will not do any good for the career of cricketers under him. Let this boy happy with his score and record. The future only will tell how capable he is against the best players.
Arya Gurukul's harassed coach Yogesh Jagtap revealed he had just about managed to assemble a team of 12-year-olds to make an appearance in the tournament. Six of their main players were unavailable owing to their pre-board matric exams. "Even three standard nine players opted out," Jagtap said. "But had we not fielded a team, we could have been denied entry next year. We were playing only for commitment." Pranav took full advantage of his underage opponents and the fact that the square-leg boundary was just over 30 yards. He only needed to scoop the ball to hit a flurry of sixes. Pranav's coach Sharma found the cavilling unfair: "The Cross Maidan too has shorter boundaries especially the wickets for LIC and National," Sharma reminded

I knew this was to come from somewhere. We Indians would always demean our achievers. We have developed out mindset to believe that only goras (or non Indians in other cases) can be the best.
The boundary was same for other 21 players. What was the type of the ground when collins scored in 1899?
Anyway, the bottomline is Pranav has achieved a great feat.
Nothing to take away from him, If I am not wrong 6 of the key players from the other team were missing due to exams pressure who were replaced with relatively junior ones, 21 catches were dropped, means 21 lives, leg side boundary less then 30 yards over and all kudos to him, groom him dont pour unwanted lime light on him at vvvv young age make him competitive or else he would be loss in huge and deep ocean of mumbai cricket Team.
Genius! 59 towering sixes and 129 fours is real striker o the ball. Noway how the bowling or fielding was there. Keep it up young lad.Gift of New Year 2016. Definitely this young Turk will make us Proud one day.
