MOHALI, INDIA.

Sachin Tendulkar of India overtook retired West Indian captain Brian Lara on Friday to become Test cricket's highest run-getter.

Tendulkar, 35, crossed Lara's tally of 11,953 runs from 131 Tests when he passed 15 on the first day of the second Test against Australia at the Punjab Cricket Association ground here.

Tendulkar, a veteran of 152 Tests, is already the world's top scorer in one-day internationals (16,361 runs), and has more Test (39) and one-day (42) centuries than any other batsman.

He is also the most senior active cricketer, having made his Test debut on November 15, 1989 against Pakistan in Karachi.

Tendulkar needed an hour to score the 15 runs required to break the record.
