Tendulkar reaches record test run milestone
Mumbai, November 8, 2011
Sachin Tendulkar became the first batsman to pass 15,000 test runs and was eyeing another milestone as the hosts moved to within 124 runs of victory against West Indies in the first test on Tuesday.
Tendulkar took off his helmet, raised his bat and looked to the heavens after reaching the milestone. He was unbeaten on 33 at stumps on day three of the bowler-dominated test at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
Rahul Dravid was also unbeaten on 30 as India reached 152 for two in chasing 276 for victory.
Tendulkar will return to the crease on Wednesday hoping to reach a much-awaited 100th century in international cricket.-Reuters
