Tendulkar: Misses One Record, Gets Others


 


Scoring runs against the West Indies was a big
deal a couple of decades ago. Their army of vicious pace bowlers made the team
phenomenally successful in the 1970s and 1980s.


It was then that Sunil Gavaskar made most of his 2,749
runs against them, the most anyone has made against the Caribbean side.


Sachin Tendulkar, during the course of his 94 in
the Mumbai Test, completed 1500 Test runs against the West Indies, become the
19th batsman and the fifth Indian to do so.


Among current players, Jacques Kallis with 2356
runs is the leader.
