Best Cricket Test Batsmen

The Top Ten Best Cricket Test Batsmen

1 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

He's the only player to have 50+ hundreds in test but Donald Bradman was a legend in batting as well

Where is Kohli?

Sachin is the most talented batsman. He is a amaging cricket player.

Where are the legends like kumar sangakkara, sanath jayasurya, mahela jayawardhane from Sri Lanka, saurav ganguly from India, mohammad yousuf from Pakistan etc. these players deserve to be in this list may not be in top ten but at least because of what they have given to test cricket, and so bad that not even a single Sri Lankan is on this list but they have given us the best test partnerships...

2 Donald Bradman Sir Donald George Bradman often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.

Sir Dom Bradman is the BEST OF ALL TIME not Tendulker

3 Rahul Dravid

Undoubtedly! He was among the few batsmen whose batting average is higher in Away matches compared to Home. It's not only about the averages but also the tremendous impact and contribution, which he made in India's overseas victories. He has played many match winning and saving innings over the course of his glorious cricketing career, which sadly doesn't get enough recognition simply because he was a more methodical and defensive batsmen and very few people (haven't met one in real life) understood his game well. To me, it was a treat to watch him bat for hours and grind the opposition down with his rock-solid defense and aesthetically pleasing shots (especially his square cut against the seamers and the cut shot which he plays against the spinners by rocking back inside his crease. I can sit back, relax and watch him bat for eternity). Thank you "The Wall" for making my childhood memorable - Arhaan95

The greatest test batsman. Very much experienced and plays patiently. The wall will always stand tall in the history of test cricket.
