Big innings are very important in the game of cricket. But at the same time runs scored by the middle order and the lower middle order at the end of the innings are also very important. Often these few runs prove the difference between a good score and a winning score.
For the Indian team from time to time, many batsmen have been responsible for the lower order. These batsmen often do not get enough time to even think of scoring a century.
Let’s see which 3 players have scored the most runs in ODIs from India without scoring a century
3) Irfan Pathan (1544 Runs)
Irfan Pathan was one of the most under-rated all-rounders of his time. Not only did he do well with his variations in bowling, but he was able to bat on any order. Perhaps this was the reason that he became an integral part of the team at one time in the 2000s. As a bowler, Irfan Pathan was able to take early wickets, while at the same time he could control the run pace while bowling in the middle overs.
In batting, Pathan has played every order except the number 11. Overall, he scored 1544 runs in 120 matches with five half-centuries in batting and a high score of 83 against Sri Lanka in 2005. Pathan is third in the Indian players scoring the most ODI runs without a century.
