Default Tendulkar passes 15,000 Test runs

Sachin Tendulkar passes 15,000 Test runs

Page last updated at 12:38 GMT, Tuesday, 8 November 2011




Tendulkar is searching for a record 100th international century Sachin Tendulkar has become the first player in history to score 15,000 runs in Test match cricket.
The Indian batsman achieved the feat when he reached 28 not out on day three of the first Test against the West Indies in Delhi.
The 38-year-old is seeking a record 100th international century having been stuck on 99 tons since March.
Tendulkar ended the day unbeaten on 33 after being trapped lbw by Fidel Edwards for seven in the first innings.
The Little Master's career Test averages

Continue reading the main story
  • Matches - 181
  • Runs - 15,005
  • Highest score - 248*
  • Batting average - 56.25
  • Centuries - 51
  • Wickets 45
  • Bowling average - 53.68

The "Little Master" passed West Indies batsman Brian Lara's mark of 11,953 runs to become the leading Test run-scorer in 2008 and subsequently became the first cricketer in history to reach 12,000, 13,000, 14,000 and now 15,000 Test runs.
He is the leading run-scorer in one day internationals, too, and holds the record for number of international centuries scored.
Attention will now return to his bid to become the first person to score 100 international centuries having scored 51 Test and 48 ODI centuries in 635 matches.
Tendulkar reached his 99th international hundred against South Africa at this year's World Cup.
Hopes were high that he would surpass the mark on India's tour of England this summer, but the Mumbai batsman struggled for form as the tourists lost the series 4-0.
A toe injury ruled him out of the home and away ODI series against England which followed.
Speaking before the current series with West Indies, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the team were preparing to mark the 100th ton landmark.
"We will let him get the century and then we will speak about it," said Dhoni. "It's a milestone Sachin will achieve, whether in this game, the next game or some other game. It's bound to happen.
"Once he gets his ton, we all will celebrate with him. It will be a big moment for Indian cricket."

Well, that's great. I thought Ash would be the first to 15,000... I think I got ducks mixed up with runs, my bad.

A century in this test would have been perfect script for Tendulkar.

Bradman and Richards are also unparalleled...

There are two things SRT has no one else does...thats longevity - the ability to be amongst the best for 20 years, and the aestheticism of his batting.

This man is unstoppable.

Btw, he better get his ton of tons today.
The anticipation is too much.
Let him get and done with it.
Currently batting on 28*

Will have to wait until the 2nd innings to get another opportunity.

Out to Bishoo for 38.

Meanwhile, the ever present Dravid bats on at 61, and 79 runs away from 13,000 test runs.

Tendulkar is great(understatement), but for me, the batsmen I always loved to watch most was Brian Lara.

Being a left hander myself, obviously has resulted in some bias, but his flamboyant style, his panache...LOVED IT.

Granted haven't seen much of Lara bat, but from the clips I have seen...he's not as aesthetically pleasing as Tendy. Tendy plays his strokes to perfection, Lara looks no different than Tamim, if you ask me (not saying tamim is a good as him) just basing it on "styles".

Asaad, just lost major brownie points by comparing Lara to Tamim. TIK is NOT a wristy player by any means. Go watch some more clips - Lara was all wrist and backlift like a magician's wand and then uncoiling like a cobra. Tendulkar's batting is pleasing from a purist point of view but man I'll take Lara's panache any day.

^Just echoing what Razab has already said...there is very little in common between Tamim and Lara, other than they are both guys, who play(ed) international cricket and are left handed.

Lara was beautiful to watch, both on the on side, and the offside, and he could drive the ball down the ground beautifully too. Tamim has only just started to figure out his legside(for the longest time, he was poor around his pads).

Tendulkar is more correct - his is the style they'll teach at cricket academies around the world, but as I said, given a choice, Lara is the one I'd pay my hard earned money to watch

A Lara square drive is essentially cricket at it's finest.

shakes head in disbelief.

tendulkar is a minimalist, like a kung fu master he will move just so and his bat will come down at precisely the right speed and no more, the ball would still fly away to the boundary.

lara was something else, a batsman with a flourish and grace that isn't needed according to the manual but created a style with all the extravagance that his talent accorded him. just because he could.

their styles reflect their personality, one putting scoring runs and conserving effort as priority, to the other batting beautifully was an end in itself.

in all my years of watching cricket I haven't seen a more beautiful style, his batting was cathartic. I have overcome personal blues watching lara bat.

Well thats the inherent issue in terms of appraising a work of art, and sports is a form of art. More so batting in cricket (as opposed to a Quarterbacks dropback). What you see may not be what someone else sees. Perhaps my tastes are eccentric. I didn't see anything incredible about the ball that got Nafees out for 97. I've seen better bouncers not get a wicket (that brute from Rubel getting Yuvy's occipitalis back in 2010 is but one example). Of course, everyone is free to disagree.

I find SRT's technical correctness more beautiful and ultimately meaningful than any "flourish" or "grace". Not taking anything away from Lara - his penchant for super big scores is matched by only the Don and Sehwag from amongst all the [albeit limited number of] players I'm familiar with. But I would rather watch Tendulkar precisely because of his "precision" that you speak of. In my humblest of opinions - and you won't get humble opinions from me every day - no amount of flourish or grace or Lara can make up for that.

But then again I also find Ashraful's batting more pleasing to the eye than Shakib's. Just a matter of personal preference. Like the beauty [or lack thereof] of a woman.

That's not much of a comparison - Shakib(and I love the kid) is quite agricultural in style.
