The England opener has become the youngest batsman to score 10,000 Test runs, a record held by India's cricketing legend for more than a decade.

After making 5 runs runs in the second innings of the second Test match against Sri Lanka, Cook broke Sachin's record. 

He also became first English cricketer to score 10,000 runs in Test cricket. 

Before start of this series Cook, who turned 31 last Christmas, had scored 9,964 Test runs, including 28 centuries and 47 fifties.
