Cricket World® Player Of The Week - Sachin Tendulkar
He had earlier passed Brian Lara's mark of 11,953 to become the all-time leading Test run-scorer.
His innings of 88 included 10 fours and set up India's total of 469 which put them in charge, but his efforts in scoring more runs than any other player in the history of the game have been honoured with the award.
He now holds the most centuries in Test cricket (39), most runs in Test cricket (12,037), most centuries in ODI cricket (42) and most runs in ODI cricket (16,361).
Other contenders for this week's award included Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for his seven wickets and a half-century in the first Test against New Zealand and Steve Tikolo, who hit a century for Kenya against Zimbabwe.
The Cricket World ® Player Of The Week is judged by the www.cricketworld.com Editorial Team, which takes into consideration matches played in the preceding week with the final decision made on Monday morning.
