Sachin Tendulkar on Saturday became the third batsman to score 11,000 runs in the longer version of the game when he reached his individual score of 27 on the second day of the second Test against England at Trent Bridge.

Tendulkar, who is the highest run-getter in One-Day Internationals, drove left-arm spinner Monty Panesar through the covers and achieve the feat during India's first innings.

After openers Dinesh Karthik and Wasim Jaffer had provided a solid start to India, Tendulkar accompanied captain Rahul Dravid to get past the England first innings total of 198.

The Mumbai batsman was the target of the English bowlers and was treated with several bouncers by the hosts' pace spearhead James Anderson.

On one occasion, he received a nasty blow on the grill of his helmet but shook off the blow to march on and went on to achieve the rare feat.

West Indies great Brian Lara (11,953) and former Australian captain Allan Border (11,174) are the other two players to have reached the milestone.


An All-Time Great with an emaculate record in both forms of the game! He definately deserves to be where he is! Congratz Sachin!
