Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Sachin Tendulkar passed 15,000 Test runs in his career as India closed on a win against the West Indies at stumps on day three of the first cricket Test.

The 38-year-old was 33 not out, with Rahul Dravid on 30 not out, as India finished the day in New Delhi on 152-2. The hosts require another 124 runs for the victory.

Tendulkar came to the crease with India on 95-2 after the West Indies had been bowled out for 180. He is the leading scorer in Tests on 15,005 runs, with Dravid second on 12,859 runs.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin claimed six West Indies wickets, following three in the first innings, to finish with 9-128 on his Test debut.

The teams are scheduled to play three Tests and five one-day matches.
