Sachin Tendulkar became the first player to reach 15,000 runs in one-day internationals while steering India to a six-wicket win over South Africa in the Future Cup in Belfast overnight.

The 34-year-old from Bombay thumped 93, sharing an opening partnership of 134 with Saurav Ganguly (42), to help India reach their target of 227 with five balls to spare and level the three-match series 1-1.

Tendulkar bludgeoned 13 fours and two sixes before he was bowled by spinner Thandi Tshabalala as his side slid from 134 without loss to 4 for 142.

But Yuvraj Singh (49 not out) and Dinesh Karthik (32 not out) shared a stand of 85 to clinch victory.

Earlier, opening batsman Morne van Wyk top-scored with 82 and Mark Boucher made an undefeated 55 as South Africa chalked up 6 for 226 in 50 overs.

Yuvraj was the pick of India's attack, taking 3 for 36 in nine overs.

The last game of the series is on Sunday.


Damn, 15,000 runs. Quite an effort.
