Most Runs in (WTC) World Test Championship 2021 – 2023

Scoring the most runs in a world test championship is one of the most difficult tasks, as it requires a lot of focus and hard work that eventually decides the winners and runners of WTC. Why is scoring runs in a World Test Championship test match a difficult task? Because it requires a lot of dedicated effort to deceive bowler plans, running between the pitch and striking the ball to different corners of the ground. 

Therefore, scoring the highest runs and achieving the first position is not an easy task. Aside from bowlers and fielders, the batsman faces a wide range of challenges in test cricket. Facing tough weather conditions is one of the most difficult challenges. Hot and humid weather makes it really difficult for batters to stay consistent on the pitch for a whole day. In the same way, windy weather challenges the batsman’s skill to play inswing and outswing balls.

Similarly, when a ball gets old, then it starts to reverse swing. Hence, it induces another kind of challenge for any batsman.

There was a time when test cricket focused mainly on bilateral series, with no inter-team competition. But things changed when ICC decided to start a global test match competition known as World Test Championship.
