The 45-year-old Tendulkar has 15,921 Test and 18,426 ODI runs to his name, making him one of the most prolific batsmen to have graced the game.

The 49-year-old Lara, on the other hand, holds the highest score of an unbeaten 400 in the longest format of the game. He has also scored 10,405 from 299 ODIs with an average of 40.48.

However, Lara's national team is not faring too well in India.

After being whitewashed in the longest format of the game, the Windies will face India in a five-match One-Day International (ODI) series, starting from October 21 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.

India will later host the visitors in a three-match Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) slated to get underway from November 4 before they head on a gruelling away tour to Australia.
