Ex- Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has rated all-rounder Jacques Kallis ahead of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid in Test cricket. Though the Indian pair has scored more runs than Kallis, Ganguly thinks the latter has been more successful in the traditional form.
While comparing the 3 cricketers on Star Cricket, Ganguly says, “Undoubtedly Kallis.” The discussion came to the fore on Star Cricket as ex- Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting on today became the 3rd batsman in the history of Test cricket to score 13,000 or more runs during his best Innings against India in the 4th and last Test
Tendulkar leads the list of leading run scorers in Test cricket with 15,432 runs along with Rahul Dravid (13262) and Ricky Ponting (13039). Jacques Kallis scored 12, 260 runs in 150 Tests at an average of 57.02 in addition to 274 wickets in Test format.
