India's Sachin Tendulkar on Monday set new world records by completing 14,000 one-day runs and hitting his 39th century in the opening one-day international against Pakistan here.
Tendulkar, who turns 33 in April, achieved the milestone in his 359th match when his score reached 91. His tally of 359 matches and 39 one-day hundreds are both world records.
He finally fell for 100 in India's 328 all out in 49.4 overs after India were sent into bat at the Arbab Niaz stadium in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar.
Pakistan's Inzamam-ul Haq is second behind Tendulkar in terms of runs, having scored 11,141 runs in 351 one-day internationals before going to bat in the Peshawar one-day match.
Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya (10,456 in 350 matches) and India's own Sourav Ganguly (10,123 in 279 matches) are the only other two batsmen who have scored more than 10,000 one-day runs.
Ganguly is second behind Tendulkar in terms of one-day hundreds with 22.
Tendulkar, who made his one-day debut against Pakistan at Gujranwala in 1989, notched his 38th hundred against Pakistan at Indian city of Ahmedabad last year.
He also holds the record of most Test centuries with 35, having scored 10,386 in 129 Test matches.
