WTC23 Top Scorers

The World Test Championship has added spice back to test cricket. Once boring test cricket has now come back to life. The teams are playing for a purpose. Its purpose is to win the World Test Championship and be crowned as the champions in the truest format of the sport. We have been gifted with many thrillers. The England VS New Zealand match went down to the wire and England lost by just 1 run.

The same was the case with the 1st Match of the New Zealand VS Sri Lanka series. This World Test Championship has given us many moments to cherish. Here is an in-depth look at how the table looks at the end and which players were the top performers:

India and Australia have managed to qualify for the World Test Championship final. Both teams have had great performances. The Indian cricket team has relied on cumulative batting performances. They struggled to get into the single performances, but they managed to do it as a team. In the bowling department, it was the trio of Ashwin, Axar, and Jaddu that did the job for them.

In the case of the Australian cricket team, it was the batters. Marnus, Steve Smith, Travis Head, and Usman Khawaja batted like never before. It will be a treat to watch these two teams battle it out in the final.

Joe Root, the phenomenal England batter has ended as the top run-getter. He scored runs for England even when they were having a dreadful Ashes series. He was their main man in the India tour of England as well. Root did most of the scoring for the English team in the initial stage of the tournament before he was removed from the leadership role. In the Bazzball-era too, he has been a consistent performer. He has relied on his technical skill to attack the opposition in the newfound approach in the World Test Championship.
