The right-hander, who turns 35 on Thursday, surpassed former West End Redbacks captain Darren Lehmann’s long-standing record of 3,963 One-Day Cup runs during SA’s clash with Victoria on Tuesday at the MCG.
Ferguson reached Lehmann’s mark with a boundary in the 36th over on his way to a second consecutive Marsh One-Day Cup century.
The classy veteran was eventually dismissed for 122, leaving him with 3,999 One-Day Cup runs for the State since making his one-day domestic debut in 2003.
Ferguson sits fifth on the overall One-Day Cup runscorers list across all teams behind Brad Hodge (5,597), Michael Klinger (5,124), Jimmy Maher (4,589) and Lehmann (4,155) inclusive of his stint with Victoria.
Teammate Tom Cooper also notched his 3,000th One-Day Cup run for SA during the match with a blazing 81* from just 46 balls which included five fours and seven sixes.
Cooper is just the fourth player to reach the 3,000-run milestone for the State.
