Alastair Cook breaks into top five of all-time Test run-scorers

Alastair Cook breaks into top five of all-time Test run-scorers

London, Sep 11 (UNI) England opener Alastair Cook moved past Sri Lankan legend

Kumar Sangakkara into fifth place in the all-time Test run-scorers' list during his final

international innings.

He needed 147 runs at the start of the game to equal Sangakkara, and got almost

half the way there in the first innings when he made 71, his first half-century of the

series.

Cook battled through to stumps on the third day to spark hopes of one last Test

hundred, and shortly after drinks on the fourth morning, he inside-edged a drive to

the leg-side to move past Sangakkara's mark of 12,400 runs, an ICC report said.

He also now stands alone as the left-hander with the most Test runs, to add to a

list of records which includes the most runs by an opener in Test cricket, the most

consecutive Test matches played, and the most runs and caps for England.

By the time he was done on Monday, Cook had also brought up that century – his

33rd in Test cricket – before ending on 147. That took his career tally to 12,472 runs,

only behind Sachin Tendulkar (15,921), Ricky Ponting (13,378), Jacques Kallis

(13,289) and Rahul Dravid (13,288).
