Sachin Tendulkar is within striking distance of bettering several records against Australia at home. Some of the statistical highs include highest run-getter, most fifties and the maximum number of centuries. Ahead of the fourth and final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla, here is a look at the approaching milestones:
# Sachin Tendulkar (3597 runs) needs another 40 runs to overhaul the existing record run aggregate of 3636 by Jack Hobbs of England against Australia. If he gets these runs, he would then have the most runs against Australia.
# Tendulkar requires three more runs for his 3600 runs against Australia. If he gets them, he would become the second batsman in the annals of Test cricket to amass 3600 runs against Australia. Hobbs has scored 3636 runs against the Aussies.
# Tendulkar has scored 27 fifties against Australia and share the record for most fifties against Australia with Hobbs, who also has scored 27 fifties. Tendulkar requires one more fifty to own the record for most fifties against Australia.
