The magic number of 10,000 ODI runs is a reflection of quality and commitment. Who are the special ones to cross this barrier?
Consistency is the key to success and in batting, greatness is measured by the ability to pile up runs consistently and efficiently.
The number 10,000 holds special value for a batsman as crossing the mark is a sign of success in ODI cricket. However, reaching this mark is a daunting task and very few are able to achieve this feat.
Scoring 10,000 runs require commitment, quality, and complete dedication and hence the ones who have achieved this feat are hailed as legends.
Relive the glory of ten such batsmen who ended their career after scoring more than ten thousand runs.
#10. Brian Lara - 10405 runs
When on song, Brian Lara was the most pleasing sight on a cricket field. A flamboyant trigger movement, massive back-lift, quick foot-work and incredible timing made Lara a pure genius while his sharp mind gave him the stature of a legend.
A batsman with massive hunger, Lara was known for playing big knocks and was effective against pace as well as spin. In his career, he seldom received support from the other end, but Lara kept on amassing big scores.
His finest moment came when he routed Sri Lanka with his 169 in 1995 and he was also impressive at Adelaide against Pakistan in 2005 when he slammed 156 runs.
