NOTTINGHAM, England (AFP):India's Sachin Tendulkar became only the third batsman in history to score 11,000 Test runs on the second day of the second Test against England at Trent Bridge here on Saturday.

The 34-year-old Tendulkar, playing his 139th Test only needed 25 runs to reach the landmark at the start of his innings.

He got there when, on 23, a cover-drive off left-arm spinner Monty Panesar went for four after a misfield on the boundary by James Anderson.

Tendulkar joined an exclusive club whose only other members are Test runs world record-holder Brian Lara (11,953) and former Australia captain Allan Border (11,174), both of whom have retired.
