Most runs in Test cricket

Cricket is one of the most watched and popular sports in the world. This centuries-old game is loved in various countries and is played in various formats. One-Day International (ODI) is the preferred cricket format today, while Twenty20 is considered the most exciting.

But Test cricket is the traditional playing style of cricket and is still very popular among fans, especially cricket lovers.

Test cricket is somewhat slow but allows players to show their skills to the fullest. Boundaries and explosive play are rare in Test cricket, with players focusing more on playing technically and cautiously. However, one thing that is unique in Test cricket is the high run totals for both individual players and teams.

Teams have crossed 600 runs while batting, and players have recorded not double but triple and quadruple centuries. Some batsmen have thousands of runs to their name. Indian Sachin Tendulkar is one of them.

Today we take a look at the players with the most runs in Test cricket.
