In 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar hanged his boot, after a illustrious career, spanning twenty years, many thoughts some of his records will be intact forever, just like sir Don Bradman’s records.
Four years on, it seems England run-machine Alastiar Cook can break at least most of his test records!
Cook is currently on 11,478 and needs 4444 to go past Sachin!
Certain factors are in his favour. He is the highest run-getter among active Test players. The man is in good form, and at 32 has a lot of time on his side. Not to mention the fact England play around 15 Tests a year which gives him all the more opportunity.
Also, Cook only plays Test cricket as he is no longer part of the shorter versions for quite some time now. This means he has more time to focus on his game and in the next four to five years could easily go past the Master Blaster.
