India vs Australia: Approaching milestones

Bangalore:

# Sachin Tendulkar (13973 in 170 Tests) is all set to become the first batsman in Test annals to complete 14,000 runs in Tests.

# Sachin Tendulkar (2884 in 30 Tests) has a golden opportunity to become the first batsman to complete 3000 runs in India-Australia Tests.

# In case he makes 73 runs in the Bangalore Test, Rahul Dravid (1927) would become the third batsman to complete 2000 runs in India-Australia Tests.  He would be joining Tendulkar (2884) and VVS Laxman (2279).

# In case of a win, Mahendra Singh Dhoni would be the first Indian skipper to post four successive wins against Australia. Sunil Gavaskar and Sourav Ganguly had won three tests each against Australia.

# Rahul Dravid (197) requires three catches to become the first fielder in Test cricket to complete a double century of catches.

# If he makes 27 runs, Ricky Ponting (1862) would set an Australian record for the highest run-aggregate  against India.  Matthew Hayden had amassed 1888  (ave.59.00) in 18 Tests.

# Zaheer Khan (985) requires 15 runs to complete the double of 1,000 runs and 200 wickets.  He would be joining the four Indian all-rounders - Kapil Dev, Javagal  Srinath, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.

# Michael Clarke (985) requires 15 runs to complete his 1,000 runs against India.  

# Ricky Ponting (19) needs one hundred to become the first captain to complete 20 as captain. He would also be the first Australian to post 7 centuries against India.
