#5 India vs Australia, 2001 – Sachin reaches 10,000
Sachin Tendulkar has broken a great many records in his long and illustrious career that spanned over two decades. Apart from being the first man to reach 200 in ODIs, he was also the first person to reach 10,000 in the same format.
It was an incredibly transcendental sight watching the master blaster break the 10,000 barrier. In the match that took place at the Nehru Stadium in Indore, Sachin scored 139 runs in just 125 balls as India cruised to a 118-run win.
