Top 10 Crickters ListMost Not Outs in All Formats in International Cricket

Most Not Outs in All Formats in International Cricket

Every player wishes to give their all in every Cricket match. Batters fight with their bats until the last ball, and bowlers always try to catch them as soon as they touch the ground. As a result, few players survived this battle and left the field without losing a wicket. Usually, tail-enders achieve this; that’s why they have the most not outs in International Cricket.
Few middle and lower-middle-order batmen demonstrate their brilliance. Some of the game’s greatest players, including MS Dhoni, Jacque Kallis, Steve Waugh, and Chanderpaul, were lone warriors in their squad. When other batters lost wickets, they often kept one side safe and managed to bring their team to a solid position.
