*** Sachin Tendulkar became the fifth Indian batsman to aggregate 17,000 runs in first-class cricket during his knock of 94 (when on 50) against Rest of India at Chennai.
Playing in his 198th first-class match, Tendulkar has now scored 17044 runs. Sunil Gavaskar, with 25834 runs, heads the list.
The list (Mts, runs, avg, 100, 50): Gavaskar 348, 25,834, 51.46, 81, 105; V. Hazare: 238, 18740, 58.38, 60 73; G. Viswanath: 308, 17970, 40.93, 44, 89; D. Vengsarkar: 260, 17868, 52.86, 55, 87; S. Tendulkar: 198, 17044, 61.75, 55, 79.
*** The 149-run partnership between Tendulkar and Sairaj Bahutule was the best for Mumbai in the Irani Trophy, bettering 109-run partnership between Sudhir Naik and Milind Rege at Bangalore during the 1973-74 season. Incidentally, the Tendulkar-Bahutule partnership was the fourth best for the sixth wicket in the Irani Trophy.
*** Meanwhile Tendulkar, who missed his 56th first-class hundred by six runs, has now missed a hundred by less than 10 runs on 12 occasions. He has five scores in the nineties in Test matches, and seven in other first-class matches (including this match), which are listed below: 92 - India v Kent at Canterbury, 1990; 96 - Mumbai v Haryana at Mumbai, 1990-91 (Ranji); 92 - Yorkshire v Gloucestershire at Leeds, 1992 (English county); 93 - Yorkshire v Essex at Leeds, 1992; 97 - Mumbai v Baroda at Mumbai (RCF), 1994-95 (Ranji); 95 - Mumbai v Railways at Mumbai, 1997-98 (Ranji); 94 - Mumbai v Rest of India at Chennai, 2003-04 (Irani)
