While India and the world continues to wait for Sachin Tendulkar's 100th international century, the master blaster on Friday reached another milestone when he struck the 2000th boundary of his ODI career.

Live Scorecard

In the Asia Cup match against Bangladesh, Tendulkar smashed the boundary when he slapped a Mashrafe Mortaza delievry to wide of short cover in the 3rd over.

As is the case with most of his records, Sachin is the first batsman to cross this mark in boundaries in ODIs. The cricketer with the maximum fours behind Tendulkar is retired Sri Lanka legend Sanath Jayasuriya who, with 1500 boundaries to his name, is way behind Sachin.

However, when it comes to hitting sixes in the 50-over format, it is not Tendulkar but Shahid Afridi who is on top of the list.
The Pakistan all-rounder is only three short of 300 sixes and is followed by Jayasuriya who slammed 270 shots over the boundary.
Tendulkar, with 193 sixes, is third on the list.
