Former India skipper Virat Kohli has not been among the top run-getters in the format since his last international ton. In 32 innings since November 23 of 2019, the day of his last century, Kohli has managed only 872 runs with six fifties.

“I am always going to say Virat Kohli because he just continues to maintain that range in all formats. He has got such high intensity every time he goes out there to play for India and he just maintains it. So in Test cricket, yes Virat Kohli,” he said.

The veteran cricketer then opined that Steve Smith would have been second on the list but his ongoing struggles amid Babar’s phenomenal batting in the format have led to the Pakistan skipper replacing the Aussie on his list.

The veteran cricketer then opined that Steve Smith would have been second in the list but his ongoing struggles amid Babar’s phenomenal batting in the format has led to the Pakistan skipper replacing the Aussie on his list.

During Kohli’s period of struggle, former England Test captain Joe Root scored 3416 runs in 65 innings with 12 centuries to stand top of the run-scoring list. Yet for Watson, Root and New Zealand’s Kane Williamson occupied the bottom-two spots.

“Kane Williamson has had a few elbow issues. He just knows how to bat and put pressure on the bowlers. Joe Root, he has had a bit of a time. It is strange how these world-class batters have these phase where instead of scoring those big hundreds, score 70s or 80s and still have a big impact on the game but aren’t able to maintain those real high standards they set themselves by scoring those big runs as they did in the past,” he explained.
