Sachin first to 2000 runs, Yuvraj shines as India qualify for knockout (Delhi)

Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar (27 off 22 balls) has become the first batsman to score 2,000 World Cup runs (his 40th match), reaching the mark by hitting three consecutive fours in front of his adoring fans.

The closest player to Tendulkar is Australian skipper Ricky Ponting, who has 1,577 runs in 42 matches.

India became the first team to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Cricket World Cup with a five-wicket win over Holland as Yuvraj Singh hit 51 not out off 73 balls.
