Sachin Tendulkar on Friday became the first batsman in One-day internationals to hit 2000th boundary during India’s Asia Cup match against Bangladesh at Dhaka.
Tendulkar reached the milestone when he smashed Mashrafe Mortaza to the cover boundary.
The master blaster is followed by Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya with 1500 boundaries.
Earlier, Tendulkar has reportedly dismissed speculation that he will retire after scoring his much-awaited 100th international ton.
A news channel has reported that Tendulkar, in an SMS sent to them, has rubbished all speculations about his retirements.
Speculation is rife that Tendulkar, who is under immense pressure after a poor run Australia, would call it quits soon after getting the century in the Asia Cup.
Another Indian batting legend Rahul Dravid announced his retirement from international cricket on Friday.
Former Indian captain Kapil Dev had said that Tendulkar should have retired after India's World Cup triumph last year.
