The Australian cricket team is currently on a tour of India. It will participate in the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy from February 9. While Team India is gearing up with the aim of reaching the final of the Test Championship, Australia is preparing its weapons for revenge against India. And now let’s see who are the Australian batsmen who have scored the most runs in India before this series.?
Australia’s legendary opener Matthew Hayden tops the list. Hayden, who played 11 Test matches on Indian soil, scored 1027 runs in 22 innings at an average of 51.35. It has 2 centuries and 5 fifties.
Former Australian captain Michael Clarke is in second place. Clarke played 13 matches in India and scored 972 runs. During this time his average was 40.50, which included 3 centuries and 4 fifties. Not only did Clarke make his debut in India, he also scored a century in the first Test.
At the third position is another legendary batsman from Australia, Allen Border. The former captain played nine Test matches for India and scored 766 runs at an average of 51.06. It has 2 centuries and 4 half centuries.
This opening batsman is fourth in the list. A left-handed batsman, Katich played 10 Test matches on Indian soil and scored 735 runs at an average of 40.83. It includes a century and 4 half-centuries.
This legendary batsman played 14 Test matches in India and scored 662 runs. His average was 26.48.. During that time Ponting scored one century and five fifties with the bat.
Current team member Steve Smith is sixth on the list. Smith has played only six Test matches for India so far, scoring 660 runs at an average of 60. During this time Smith scored 3 centuries and one half-century.
