Ponting overtakes Dravid to become second highest Test run scorer

April 24, 2012 - Dominica

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting overtook India's Rahul Dravid to become the second highest Test run scorer during the opening day of the third Test against the West Indies.

Ponting edged past Dravid's career total of 13,288 runs after scoring 23. He was caught by West Indies captain Darren Sammy at leg-slip off off- spinner Shane Shillingford.

Veteran Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has the highest total of Test runs with 15,470 at an average of 55.44, Sport 24 reports.

Dravid retired from international cricket last month.
