Ahmedabad:

After completing 30,000 runs in international cricket, Sachin Tendulkar added another leaf to his record book as he made 43rd Test hundred on Day 5 of the Ahmedabad Test against Sri Lanka.

This was his 8th century against Sri Lanka.

Master Blaster became the first batsman to complete 30,000 international runs when he scored his 35th run in the 2nd innings against Lanka.

He has so far played 160 Tests, 436 ODIs and a T20 scoring 88 international hundreds and 144 fifties.

Sachin has 12877* runs in Tests, 17178 in One-Day Internationals and just 10 in Twenty20 Internationals. He had crossed the 17,000-ODI run mark in the last series against Australia.

Another milestone awaits the Little Master as he is one wicket short of 200 international wickets. He has 44 wickets in Tests, 154 in ODIs and one wicket in T20.
