Tendulkar completes 18,000 runs

Rajneesh Gupta | December 11, 2004 18:34 IST

Sachin Tendulkar added yet another feather to his cap by becoming the third Indian to complete 18,000 runs in first class cricket during his innings of 159* against Bangaldesh on Saturday.

Sunil Gavaskar and Vijay Hazare are the only two other batsmen to have done so for India. Tendulkar's , however, is the quickest in terms of innings. Also his average is the highest among top-10 Indian batsmen.
