The format of Test cricket is very different from that of ODI or T20I. In Tests, there is no limit on the number of overs. A team can play an unlimited number of overs during their batting. A team can bat until it loses all of its wickets. A Test match consists of two innings for each team and can go for 5 days in a row.
Due to unlimited overs in Test cricket, batsmen do not have to worry about strike rate and they can bat at their own pace. Due to this, many batsmen often smash a mammoth score in Test matches. In the past, few batsmen have smashed 150+ knocks multiple times while leading a team in Test. Here we take a glance at 4 batsmen with the most 150-run knocks as Test captain.
