Sachin Tendulkar added another feather to his illustrious hat as he surpassed 50,000 runs across all formats of cricket.

In the second semi-final of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) 2013 between Mumbai Indians and Trinidad and Tobago, Tendulkar achieved the landmark.

This is what his India teammate Yuvraj Singh had to say on twitter:

Statistician Mohandas Menon pointed out that Tendulkar became the 16th batsman to score 50,000 runs. The list is headed by former England skipper Graham Gooch who has 67,057 runs to his name.

The ongoing CLT20 is Tendulkar’s last tournament with the Mumbai Indians.
