Sachin Tendulkar is widely regarded as one of the finest batters ever to play the game. Years after he has hung up his boots, he is still the record holder of the most international runs as well as the most runs in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Test match cricket respectively.

In addition, Tendulkar also owns the record for the most international hundreds, having scored 100 international centuries – an enviable record that most batters who like to challenge themselves would want to chase. Among the current crop of batters, not many can come close to Tendulkar’s record of 15921 Test runs but still, there are a few who might overhaul this tally.

Here in this article, we list 3 batters who can go past Tendulkar’s record of most runs in Test cricket.

1. Joe Root

The latest entrant to the 10,000 Test run-club Joe Root is the runaway favourite to break Tendulkar’s record. This is because the former England Test captain is 31-years-old and if he does not experience any dip in form, he is likely to achieve the 6000 odd more runs.

The other thing that goes in Root’s favour is that England play a lot of Test matches which would make him the favourite to cross Tendulkar’s tally of 200 Test matches.

Currently, Root has 10,015 Test runs from 118 matches at an average of 49.57 and a highest score of 254. He has 26 Test centuries to his credit to go with his 53 half-centuries.
