New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar today added another feather in his cap when he became the first batsman to score 2,000 runs in the World Cup.

Tendulkar completes 2000 runs in World Cup

He achieved the feat during his 27-run knock in their group B match against the Netherlands here at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Playing in his 40th World Cup match, the champion batsman reached the milestone in style, smashing Ryan ten Doeschate for three consecutive boundaries.

Tendulkar, who has equalled Javed Miandad's record of six World Cup appearances, has five centuries and 13 half centuries in the mega-event.

Having hit maximum number of tons in Tests (51) and One-day Internationals (47), the 37-year-old is the highest run-scorer in both forms of the game.

Australian skipper Ricky Ponting is placed next in the list of highest run-scorers in the World Cup with 1,577 runs from 42 matches.
