It is not often that we come across Indian cricketers who continue their good form in the first innings into the second innings and make it a memorable test for them. Especially in the World Test championship, the standard of bowling has raised a lot and the batsmen have found it very difficult to score runs again and again.
Scoring fifties in both innings can certainly take the confidence really high for the batsmen and it can take the team to a good position as well. Here are 5 Indian cricketers who scored 50 plus in both innings of a World Test Championship match.
5 Indian Cricketers Who Scored 50 Plus In Both Innings Of A WTC Match:
Ajinkya Rahane was India’s highest run-scorer in the previous World Test Championship and contributed immensely to India reaching the finals of the inaugural edition. Rahane was under scrutiny for a long time for not scoring centuries and he finally managed to break the jinx in 2019 in the series against West Indies.
He almost got a century in the first innings of the first Test until he got dismissed for 81, but managed to capitalize on the opportunity in the second innings and brought up a beautiful century that involved a lot of emotions. He came to the party when India needed him the most and eventually won the Test as well in the West Indies.
