Apart from Tendulkar, no other batsman has touched the mark of 15,000 runs in test cricket. He is succeeded by former Australian captain Ricky Ponting with 13,378 runs. Also, there is no other batsman who is close to his numbers to break the record apart from Alastair Cook who has 12,005 runs from the 152 matches that he has played so far. But looking at his recent form and numbers, he has to perform exceptionally well to reach to that mark.
Touching the feat of scoring 10,000 runs is believed to be one of the biggest batting achievement which was first achieved by Sunil Gavaskar and after him 12 more player got to that mark. Hashim Amla is expected to be the next one who currently has around 8800 runs.
