Cricket Video - India Win, Kallis Reaches 12,000 Runs - Cricket World TV

A cricket video for Cricket World  TV about the latest cricket news looking at India beating the West Indies in the second Test and Jacques Kallis becoming the fourth man to reach 12,000 Test runs.

Centuries from Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Mahendra Singh Dhoni put India in a commanding position of the second Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata before the West Indies, despite a valiant attempt from Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels, were comprehensively defeated.

At the ground where he scored a masterful 281 against Australia in 2001, Laxman made 176 not out while Dravid looked to be at his best as he became the leading Test run-scorer of the year in making 119. Dhoni scored a century as brilliant as the one he achieved in the 2011 World Cup final, making 144 which included five sixes and plenty of his renowned helicoptor shots.

Bravo, who is rapidly collecting comparisons with the great Brian Lara - to whom he is related - scored a masterful 136 but his effort proved to be in vain while Samuels made his first genuine contribution with the bat since his return from a ban for match-fixing.

Meanwhile, Jacques Kallis moved into fourth place on the all-time Test run-scoring list behind Tendulkar, Dravid and Ricky Ponting with his 55th half-century as the second Test between South Africa and Australia got underway in Johannesburg. He overtook Lara by hitting 54 in just 41 balls in a fine innings at The Wanderers as South Africa look to seal a rare series win over Australia.
