Sachin Tendulkar completes 25,000 runs in First-Class cricket

Cuttack: Feb 8, 2013

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar completed 25,000 runs in First-Class cricket while playing for Mumbai against Rest of India in the Irani Trophy match on Friday. He was unbeaten on 105 when he went past the landmark. He has taken 303 matches to achieve this feat.

Earlier, Tendulkar completed his century against Rest of India and equalled Sunil Gavaskar on the number of first class centuries on Day Three of the Irani Trophy at Mumbai.

This is his 81st first-class century. He brought it up with a single off S Sreesanth. His knock included 12 boundaries and two sixes.

In reply to Rest of India’s total of 526, Mumbai had a steady start provided by Wasim Jaffer and Ajinkya Rahane but since their departure, Tendulkar has steadied the ship.

This knock will give the man a lot of confidence ahead of a tough series against Australia, starting from February 22.

After retiring from limited-over format of the game, Tendulkar has done well for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy and has carried his form into the Irani Cup.

With this ton, he will hope to take the momentum into the four-match Test series against Australia.
