Yesterday, young buck Karun Nair made cricketing history by becoming only the second Indian to score 300 runs in a test match.

This is just Nair's third test game, and he scored 303*, which is frankly amazing.


The Indian Cricket Team uploaded a few photos of the proud parents, and they've been shared almost 8,000 times in less than 24 hours because of how goddamn tear-inducing they are.

This is probably the point that Nair realised that cameras were on them, and some decorum should be maintained. But through it all, his mom is still holding his hand, and his dad can't take his proud eyes off of him.

👏 👏 👏 Karun Nair. Keep it up.
