Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday became the third batsman in One-Day Internationals history to complete 10,000 runs. Others to do so are fellow countryman Sachin Tendulkar and Pakistan's Inzamam-ul-Haq.

This is how Ganguly has performed against each country:

as captain 142 138 11 5027 39.58 144 11 30 9

This is how the three members of Exclusive-10,000 club reached this milestone:
Batsman Mts Inns Ave. Reached on
Tendulkar 266 259 42.37 v Australia,Indore,31-03-2001
Inzamam 322 299 39.06 v India,Birmingham,19-09-2004
Ganguly 272 263 41.22 v Sri Lanka, Dambulla,03-08-2005

Note: It must be noted that all of Ganguly's runs have not come for India.

His aggregate includes an innings of 22 for an Asian XI v World XI in a Tsunami Relief Fund match played at Melbourne in January this year, which was given official status by ICC, but not considered by many statisticians (most notably by Bill Frindall) since it flouted ICC's own ruling about official ODIs.

So technically Ganguly is still 4 short of completing his 10,000 runs for TEAM INDIA.
