Top five players with most test scores over 150 runs 

Today we are going to discuss about those players who scored above 150 runs in test matches in their cricket career. Some big names is enlisted in this list. Let’s take a tour to watch those players.

6. Ricky Ponting (Australia): Ricky Ponting, the most unwavering player of his generation, grew into Australia’s most successful run-maker and only sits below Bradman in the country’s overall ratings. He plays all the shots with a full flourish of the bat – the cover drive and the pull are particularly productive methods – and knows only to attack. His magnificent, dead-eye fielding is a force in the game by itself. He occupied the 6th position in this list as he hit 15 centuries scoring above 150 runs. He made his first above 150 runs innings against Pakistan at Perth in 1999. He made his 15th above 150 runs score against India at Adelaide in 2012 as he scored 221 runs in this innings.

5. Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka): Mahela Jayawardene is easily one of the most graceful batsmen of his generation.  His veritable quality as a batsman was never in doubt even when he just entered the international scene, but for Jayawardene the biggest challenge has been to justify all the early puff. He collected 16 centuries in his pocket where he scored above 150 runs in his test career. He made his maiden test century against New Zealand at Galle in 1998. He scored 167 in that innings. In 2014 he got his 16th century where he got above 150 runs. He scored 165 runs against South Africa. His batting has improved with age. He occupied 5th position in this list.

4. Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka): Kumar Sangakkara, one of the “most polished and prudent of batsmen” in cricket history.  Cover drive is one of his regular scoring shots. He likes to hit the ball square of the wicket on the off-side. He is standing at 4th position in this list. He hit 17 tons scoring above 150 runs in his test career. His first above 150 runs score is 230, against Pakistan in Lahore. In this year he added his 17th century scoring 319 runs against Bangladesh.
