London, Jul 23: Rahul Dravid today went past Australian Ricky Ponting to become the second highest run getter in Test cricket during the historic first Test between India and England at Lord's here.


The 38-year-old Dravid, who had 12,314 runs from 153 Tests at an average of 52.40 before coming into the match, surpassed Ponting who has scored 12,363 runs in 152 games.

Dravid achieved the milestone when he flicked Graeme Swann through midwicket for a boundary in the fourth ball of the 49th over.

The former India skipper, who interestingly made his Test debut against the same opponents at the same venue in 1996, has 32 hundreds and 60 fifties before this match.

Now two Indians are at the top of the most prolific Test batsmen's chart. Dravid's team-mate Sachin Tendulkar is the highest run scorer, having scored 14,692 runs in 177 Tests before this match. PTI
