    How special it was

    Ajinkya Rahane talks about how he didn't have a hundred on his mind but how special it was to get there as well.
    I read this article on is the grammatical function of "how" in the given context and what part of speech does "how" belong to here(talks about how.., how special..)?

    Re: How special it was

    I am not a teacher.

    'how' here function as an relative adverb.
    Here, 'how' means the way in which.

    Ajinkya Rahane -noun
    talks- verb
    about -preposition
    how-relative adverb
    he didnt have a hundred- adjective clause
    on- preposition
    his mind- noun

    'how' was modifying the adjective clause 'he didn't have a hundred'.
