Dravid beats Border

Kanpur: Rahul Dravid has passed former Australian captain Allan Border to become the fourth-highest run-scorer in Test history.

He overtook Allan Border (11174 in 156 Tests) during the first innings of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Kanpur.

Dravid now has 11,182 runs in 136 Tests at an average of 53.50.

Karnataka batsman also became the third Indian batsman to hit a ton on his way to 144 off 226 balls as the home team moved to 4-535 by the lunch-break. His innings consisted of 15 boundaries and a six.

Dravid was run out at the non-striker's end when Rangana Herath failed to hold a return catch on a forceful shot from Laxman, but the ball deflected on to the stumps with Dravid caught outside the crease while backing up.
