8:49 am on 9 November 2011

Sachin Tendulkar has become the first batsman to pass 15,000 runs in test cricket, and he'll be out to achieve another great milestone later today in New Delhi.

Tendulkar took off his helmet, raised his bat and looked to the heavens after reaching the milestone on the third day of the first test against the West Indies.

He'll return to the crease this afternoon on 33, with India 152 for 2, chasing 276 for victory, and the crowd will be hoping to celebrate their hero's 100th century in international cricket.
