March 16, 2004 21:29 IST

Sachin Tendulkar crossed yet another milestone in his glittering career when he completed 13,000 runs in One-Day Internationals during the second one-dayer against Pakistan in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old batting genius, the highest run-getter in the shorter version of the game, reached the landmark when he scored 51 runs during India's innings.

Playing in his 330th match, Tendulkar flicked  Mohammad Sami to the deep backward square region for a single in the day-night tie to reach the milestone.

Tendulkar has scored his runs at an average of nearly 45 and leads the pack of highest ODI run-getters by a mile.

Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq is placed 3,422 runs behind Tendulkar on 9,607 from 309 matches.

Former Indian captain Mohd Azharuddin is third with 9,378 runs from 334 matches at an average of 36.92.
