The Indian team as a whole has played really well and the reason behind the team’s success has been each player contributing at different stages of the World Test Championship. The bowlers did their job and the batsman had to cope up with the different situations which made them a little inconsistent.
The likes of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli haven’t made any centuries in the last two years in international cricket which is a rare sight and it also shows, how the other players have stepped up to the occasion. As we gear up for the inaugural finals, it is time to look at five Indian batsmen with the most runs in the ICC World Test Championship.
5 Indian Batsmen With The Most Runs:
Cheteshwar Pujara is fifth on the list of top run-getters from India in the ICC World Test Championship and he has been going through a rough patch which is very rare for him. He always gets into the act and has been missing the long innings. He scored 818 runs in the 17 tests at an average of 29.21 and with the highest score of 81 in the tournament.
Pujara is not associated with getting starts and not making it count, but such has been the season for him as he hasn’t scored a century in the tournament alongside nine half-centuries. He was battling it hard for India in Australia and there is no doubt that he is a true warrior, but he needs to pull his socks up soon to better his numbers.
