Test  cricket has given us a number of amazing batsmen who have occupied a special place in our hearts. They have played some amazing innings throughout their career which is simply unforgettable. We all admired their playing style, their elegance, class and patience. The world has seen batsmen like Sir Don Bradman, Brian Lara, VVS Laxman simply redefined the very meaning of Test batting and today they have become legends for the existing and upcoming generations. People used to rush to the stadiums and remained glued to the television screens when these fine gentlemen came to the crease to bat. One cannot simply ignore their contribution to Test cricket.

Hence in a small tribute we, here, present a list of top 10 batsmen with most number of fours in a Test innings:
