The shocking fact is that no Indian player is among the top 5 scorers in Test cricket this year. However, the Indian team is the No.1 Test team in the ICC ranking. Also, a new tournament has been started this year in the longest format- ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2019-21. In the WTC, India is leading the points table with 360 points and Australia is in the second position with 256 points.
As the year ends, its time to let you know about the records made in 2019. So here Sportzwiki tells you about the five players who score most Test runs in 2019.
5. Ben Stokes
The all-rounder Ben Stokes created a remarkable impact not only on his team but also in the cricket world. He was the one who single-handedly took the team in winning a Test match during the Ashes series. However, England could not win the series, but they managed to draw the series.
The 28-year-old scored 821 Test runs in 11 matches at an average of 45.61. He also scored two centuries and four half-centuries. He has become the backbone of England cricket who also won the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 because of his contribution.
