Sachin Tendulkar breaks Brian Lara’s Record

Sachin Tendulkar completes destiny to become greatest

India’s Sachin Tendulkar completes destiny to become greatest Test run scorer of all time

If ever a destiny was writ in stone it was that Sachin Tendulkar would one day become Test cricket’s leading run-scorer.

Ever since he made an unbeaten 326 in a school match, supreme greatness has been predicted and now, on the first day of India’s second Test against Australia in Mohali, that karma has finally come to pass.

Having failed to break the record in Bangalore, Tendulkar needed to wait until the first ball after tea to exceed the 11,953 runs made by Brian Lara. Needing 15 at the start of his innings, he passed his old rival with a guide for three to third man off the relatively unknown seam bowler Peter Siddle, hardly a box office combination with which to crack cricket’s blue riband feat.

Tendulkar‘s celebrations, a couple of glances to the heavens, no doubt to thank his peers in the vast pantheon of Hindu gods, were more muted than those around him. Otherwise it was firecrackers and a standing ovation from the adoring crowd and handshakes all round from the Aussies.

Sachin Tendulkar Breaks Record

Sachin Tendulkar broke Brian Lara’s record for most Test runs in the final session of day one in Mohali when he hit Peter Siddle to third man for two runs. The record stood for nearly two years after Lara played his final Test and it was inevitable that Tendulkar would eventually break it. Incidentally, he is also one-day cricket’s leading run-scorer with 16,631 runs.

Tendulkar was expected to attain the feat in Sri Lanka recently but he endured a poor series with the bat, scoring just 95 runs in three Tests. It was only fitting, though, that he achieved the record against Australia, a team he has tormented several times in the past.
