India vs Australia 1st Test: Matthew Hayden made 8,000 Test run

India vs Australia 1st Test is going on. Australia has already declared their 2nd innings after making a monstrous chasing score of 499 against India. India team has to make miracle win if they want to make a record in Aussies soil. Many records have been made today. Indian finger spinner Harbhajan Singh has entered 250 wickets in Test Club and Matthew Hayden has passed his 8,000 Test runs and it is the most talked topic now.

Australian left-hand opening batsman Matthew Hayden is perhaps the most dominating and aggressive tall batsman in the cricket world.

He has just passed 8,000 Test runs in the second innings of the 1st Test against India at MCG.

Before the start of the 1st Test between India and Australia, Matthew Hayden needed only 168 runs to pass the 8000 mark.

However, it takes only one Test match to pass the lank mark. In the first innings of the Boxing Day Test match, he scored 124 runs and today he got out after scoring 47 runs off facing 54 balls including 6 boundaries. His total score is 8003 in 92 Tests at an average of 53:00. He got out in the ball of Harbhajan Singh give a catch to Sourav Ganguly at long-off.

Now, it is expected to him to enter the list of 10,000 Test runs. It is not so far and hard for Matthew Hayden. If he can continue his form then we can see him quickly to pass the record of 10,000 runs and make a new record in Test cricket.
