Sachin Tendulkar Celebrates on Reaching 15,000 Runs

Needing 28 runs to reach the milestone, the Little Master, who is playing his 182nd match, pushed a single of Devendra Bishoo's delivery to reach the 15,000-runs mark on day three at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.

On completing the milestone, Sachin looked up to the heavens even as his team-mates and audience gave him standing ovation. Rahul Dravid, who is at the other end, congratulated him; followed by the West Indies players.

The 38-year-old cricketer has achieved one milestone, yet he has another one at hand. Batting at 33, cricket lovers would love to see him score the illusive 100th century tomorrow. He has scored 51 centuries in test cricket and 48 in one-day internationals.
