New Delhi: Sri Lankan opener Tillakaratne Dilshan on Sunday joined an elite club of cricketers by crossing the 10,000 ODI run-mark during the 5th ODI against Pakistan at Hambantota.
The stylish right-hander has now become 11th batsman overall and the fourth Sri Lankan to cross the mark of 10,000 runs in 50-overs cricket.
Before Dilshan, only three Islanders -- Kumar Sangakkara, Sanath Jayasuriya and Mahela Jayawardene -- have managed to achieve the feat.
The 38-year-old, reached the landmark when he took a single off Shoaib Malik to move to 55, before being run out on 63.
The aggressive batsman took 293 innings to feature himself among the top scoring batsmen of all time, boasting an average of about 40.
The top run-scorer in this format is Sachin Tendulkar, with 18426 runs under his belt. The list also includes big names like Rahul Dravid, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Jacques Kallis.
