Tendulkar reaches milestone

The Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar reached 11,000 runs in the second Test being played at Trent Bridge when he scored 91 but all he needed was 25 runs to reach the 11,000 mark.

I have always followed with some interest cricket matches played at Trent Bridge and Edgbaston because these are the two English grounds that I am most familiar with but it was a long wait on the first day as play only started after midnight Melbourne time.

Tendulkar would have a scored his 38th century had he scored an extra nine runs but Paul Collingwood made sure that didn't happen.

The other batsmen to have scored more that 11,000 runs are Brian Lara with 11,953 and Allan Border with 11,174. I think Thendulkar will be able to pass Border soon because he only needs another 108 runs to do so but I think it will be a while to overtake Lara's haul .

Back to the second Test, I think England will be hoping that the weather will come to their rescue this time just like it did for India in the first Test but they have started their second innings well and could well salvage a draw without the weather's intervention.
