Interestingly,
Jayawardene is the slowest of the nine to reach the mark, taking 333 innings.

 

Tendulkar,
who was the first in 2001, remains the fastest, getting there in
259 innings. Jayasuriya is the only other to take
more than 300 innings, getting there in 328.

 

Rahul
Dravid and Jacques Kallis, who've had to deal with the tag of being slow
scorers, got there in 287 and 272 innings respectively.

 

The
opponent-wise break-up of Jayawardene's 10,004 runs.

While Jayawardene has proven himself to be a
steady hand in home and neutral venues, his record is on the weaker side in
away games.
