The Master Blaster still holds the record for most runs scored in Tests and ODIs. Moreover, he also holds the record of smashing 100 centuries (51 centuries in Tests, 49 centuries in ODIs) in international cricket, which is quite an insane statistic.
Popularly known as the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar aggregated a record 15921 runs in Tests at an average of 53.8. On the other hand, he scored 18426 runs in One-Day Internationals at an average of 44.8.
