Veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul on Thursday became only the 10th player in history to make 10,000 Test runs.

The 37-year-old reached the landmark when he went to 13 in West Indies' second innings of the third and final Test against Australia at Windsor Park.

Chanderpaul is playing in his 140th Test, having made his debut against England in Georgetown in 1994.

Going into the current game, he had made 25 centuries, 57 fifties and boasted a top score of 203 not out with an average of 49.83. – AFP
