Sachin Tendulkar is the only cricketer to score more than 2000 fours in Test Match cricket. In the 329 innings that he played for India, Tendulkar scored a staggering 2058 fours in Test cricket.

Again, to put this achievement in some perspective, he leads the second-placed Rahul Dravid by a colossal 404 fours. Among active players, only Amla has 1145 boundaries to his name and is nowhere near Tendulkar’s record.

Sachin Tendulkar is the only cricketer in the history of Test Cricket to have played a staggering 200 Tests for his country. He leads the second-placed Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh by 32 test appearances(they both have appeared for Australia in 168 Tests).

Among active players, Amla has represented his country 121 times, but since he is already 35, has virtually no chance of coming anywhere even close to Tendulkar’s record.
