How do you balance CS_2 + Cl_2 -> C Cl_4 + S_2Cl_2? What is the mole ratio of Cl_2 to C Cl_4?

${\text{CS"_2 + 3"Cl"_2 rarr "CCl"_4 + "S"_2"Cl}}_{2}$

Explanation:

The equation above is certainly balanced. I don't know whether it is valid or not, inasmuch as I have never seen this reaction done. Given the balanced equation 3 equiv of chlorine gas react with 2 equiv carbon disulfide.
