Ravindra, who was 23 at the time, surpassed Tendulkar’s mark of 523 runs set in the 1996 World Cup with a clip off Maheesh Theekshana in the second innings.

Ravindra had already accumulated 523 runs in eight innings at an average of 74.71 before Thursday’s match, making him the leading Kiwi run-scorer in the tournament. He struck three hundreds and two fifties during his record-breaking campaign.
