New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar might be the highest run-getter in cricket but he certainly is not the first choice of Sourav Ganguly when it comes to picking the most effective player. Instead, South Africa's Jacques Kallis walks away with the honour.
Ganguly said so during the commentary of the fourth Test between India and Australia, when he was discussing the highest run-getters in Test cricket with his fellow commentator Ian Chappell .
This after Ricky Ponting became the third cricketer to complete 13,000 Test runs. The other two players are India's Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. Kallis is the fourth highest scorer in Test cricket with 12260 runs.
