Jonny Bairstow Overtakes Virat Kohli as Leading Run Scorer in This Year

Jonny Bairstow Overtakes Virat Kohli as Leading Run Scorer in This Year

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been a run machine in recent times because of his sensational form in recent times.

Cricket news: Kohli had previously overtaken Bairstow but the latter regained the top spot at Lord’s

The 29-year-old Delhi-born cricketer has scored approximately 17,000 runs which includes 57 centuries in all the three formats of the game, and is also the top-ranked played in Tests and ODIs.

Kohli had scored 149 in the first innings and 51 in the second innings of the Edgbaston Test against England, but failed to steer his team to victory.

In the second Test at Lord’s his performance was not up to the expectations as he fell cheaply for 23 runs to Chris Woakes. Despite of that Kohli had personal reasons to cheer.

He overtook the English cricketer Jonny Bairstow to become this year’s leading run-scorer in international cricket, as his tally became 1404 runs compared to 1389 runs of Bairstow.

But the happiness was extremely short-lived as Bairstow again regained the top spot as he scored 93 runs in the first innings of the second Test at Lord’s.

Bairstow had scored back-to-back four centuries in ODIs recently and his excellent form continues. In the first Test he scored 70 important runs and moreover built a century partnership with skipper Joe Root in the first innings of that Test.

After Bairstow and Kohli, the chart features names like England’s Joe Root (1338 runs), Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman (1181 runs) and India’s Shikhar Dhawan (1055 runs).
