Sachin Tendulkar sets new run record

BBC News reports that India’s Sachin Tendulkar has set a new record for the most runs scored by a batsman in Test cricket, overtaking the mark set by West Indies’ Brian Lara.

Tendulkar, 35, scored the 15 extra runs he needed to overtake Lara’s aggregate of 11,953 on day one of the second Test against Australia in Mohali.

Since regaining his form and ensuring his continued presence in the Test side there has been some inevitability that he would break Lara’s record. I and about half a billion people on the subcontinent congratulate him on this record breaking feat.
