Bristol school boy's 1899 cricketing world record broken

A cricketing world record set by a Bristol schoolboy more than 100 years ago was finally smashed by an Indian teenager this week.

Fifteen-year-old Pranav Dhanawade became the first player ever to score 1,000 runs in a single innings

The previous record was held by Clifton College pupil Arthur Collins, who scored 628 not out in June 1899.

BBC Points West's Fiona Lamdin reports.
