India is traditionally known as the factory of batting talent. Over the years, India has given many class-batsmen to world cricket across all formats. In test cricket, India has produced some generational talents. From the great Polly Umrigar to Sunil Gavaskar and then Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli, India has always been blessed with the best batsmen at their disposal. Let’s take a look at the top 5 Test batsmen in the Indian cricket history:
A very special batsman from Hyderabad is the 4th-highest run-scoring batsman in the Indian cricket history. His wrist work was a treat to watch for the fans. The most special thing about Laxman was his determination and patience during tough times. His inning of 281 runs against Australia will be forever embarked in the heart of every Indian cricket fan. Laxman went on to score 8781 runs in 134 Tests at an average of 45.97.
The man who broke all the traditional rules and changed the definition of an opening batsman in the test cricket. The right-handed batsman used to attack the bowlers from the first bowl. Viru is one of only 2 players who have scored triple-centuries in test matches for India. He is also the only Indian batsman in history to score 2 triple centuries for India. It wasn’t for his runs, the impact Sehwag had in test cricket during his days cannot be matched ever again. Sehwag is also the 5th highest run-getter for the nation with 8503 runs in 103 Tests at an average of 49.43. He is surely among the Top 5 test batsmen in the Indian test cricket history.
