On this day in 2009, Sachin Tendulkar became the first player to cross 30,000 Run-Mark

On this day in 2009, Sachin Tendulkar became the first player to cross 30,000 Run-Mark

Back in 2009 on this day, Legendary Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar became the first-ever batter to cross the 30,000 run-mark in International Cricket. Tendulkar became the only batter to reach this milestone in International cricket during India’s first Test against Sri Lanka at Ahmedabad. The series comprised three fixtures.

In the fixture, Sachin was dismissed for four runs in the first innings however he didn’t give up & bounced back in the second innings to score an unbeaten 100 off 211 balls with 11 fours. By the time Sachin ended his career he has scored 34,357 runs in 664 International fixtures in 782 innings at an average of 48.52.

A Glimpse of Sachin Tendulkar Glorious Records

Notably, Tendulkar is the only batter to score 100 tons in International cricket & has also amassed 164 fifties.  His record-breaking 34,357 International runs is a milestone that none of his teammates could reach close to or could have surpassed. Other legends of World Cricket such as Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakara (28,016) Australian great Ricky Ponting (27,483), Sri Lankan batter Mahela Jayawardene (25,957) & all-rounder Jacques Kallis (25,534) retired from Cricket without touching the mark of 30,000 runs.

On the other hand, Sachin’s teammates such as Rahul Dravid (24,208), former Captain Sourav Ganguly (18,575), MS Dhoni (17,266) & Virender Sehwag (17,523) fell short of the 30,000 runs mark which Sachin has proudly bagged under his kitty. Currently, it’s only Virat Kohli who has been compared to Tendulkar who is his one-and-only idol. He has amassed 24,426 runs in 479 fixtures at an average of 53.92 with 71 tons & 129 half-centuries on his name.

Whether Virat Kohli could near or surpass his idol’s record of 30,000 runs or Sachin Tendulkar will remain the whole & sole 30,000 run-scorer in the International format is what time will say, but for now, Sachin is the only 30,000 run-scorer in International format.
