A long way to run
At 2.39pm, Sachin Tendulkar clipped a ball from his hips to fine leg to bring up his 10,000th run in Test cricket. If he'd actually physically run each of them, and assuming 20 yards to a run, that works out to around 183 kilometers of running, or about 4.35 marathons. Such are statistics.
