    Here is a list of the highest test runs amongst players still playing test cricket:

    Kumar Sangakarra - 12305
    Alistair Cook - 9139
    Younis Khan - 8814
    Michael Clarke - 8592
    AB DeVilliers - 7606
    Ian Bell - 7427
    Chris Gayle - 7214
    Hashim Amla - 6770
    Brendan McCullum - 6008

    Arguably you could include Shiv Chanderpaul (dropped rather than retired) on 11867

    Kumar Sangakarra wil retire during the forthcoming test series against India

    Ross Taylor's heroics against Australia (235 no overnight) took him past 5,000 runs to 5,030 - so now 7 current test players on that list
    He is the 86th player to reach that milestone
