5 Batsmen Who Can Be the Leading Run-Scorer in the Australia-India Test Series

After a long gap of two years, cricket’s biggest rivals are back to compete against one another in the longest format of the game.

The cricket fans are excited and are eagerly waiting to witness the two giants of world cricket to face each other in the series which begins from 6 December.

Unlike all the past tours played Down Under, experts are predicted an Indian win because of the absence of two best Aussie batsmen in the likes of David Warner and Steve Smith.

However the Australians are not taking a foot back and are waiting eagerly to give a fightback. The series will be heavily contested and the batsmen are expected to have a bigger say in the four-match Test series.

Here is the list of 5 batsmen who can end the Test series as the leading run-scorer:

Virat Kohli

It would have been surprising if the Indian skipper didn’t make this list, especially with the form he is exhibiting in recent times. Kohli does not know what it means to play at home or in overseas conditions.

He just comes, dominates over the bowlers and then raises his bat in every other match now. Such is his ability that people gets surprised when he doesn’t score at least a half-century. Even former England captain Michael Vaughan called him the “G.O.A.T” on Twitter.

Kohli has an overall average of 54.58 after playing in 124 innings. Against Australia he has an average of just a shade over 50.

However the 30-year-old averages an outrageous 62 while batting on Australian soil. No one can forget the innings he played in Adelaide when the two teams met last. He will definitely play a crucial role in the upcoming series as well.
