Top 5 Batsmen with Most Runs at Home

Cricket is the game which is played both in home and in alien conditions. Sometimes runs scored in foreign conditions given more weight than runs scored in home conditions but here are the top 5 batsmen with the most runs at home, because the runs are runs right?

Top 5 Batsmen with Most Runs at Home

You won’t feel surprised to see that this section is occupied mainly by the subcontinent batsmen. All three in this list are ‘greats’ in their own rights, but still we do know that subcontinent pitches are full of runs and there is hardly a chance for the batsmen who have started their career on such pitches to lose an opportunity to score heavily. Here are toe top 5 batsmen of the world who have amassed runs in their home conditions.

Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka)

Kumar Sangakkara

Total matches played at home: 69

Total runs scored at home: 6310

Batting Average at home: 60.55

Highest score: 287

That’s mammoth to say the least. Remember Kumar Sangakkara is still playing so we will add a few more runs in years to come. One can argue with the flat Sri Lankan pitches at the offer, but remember Sangakkara had been captain of the team and also a wicket keeper too, so with two more responsibilities in hand, this is no less achievement.

Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka)

Mahela Jayawardene

Total matches played at home: 79

Total runs scored at home: 7024

Batting Average at home: 60.55

Highest score: 374

The ‘former’ team mate of Kumar Sangakkara! Yes, we have to use the word ‘former’ now because Mahela Jayawardene has just retired from the test matches. One of the long standing buddies of Sangakkara; Mahela Jayawardene has the identical average of him at home. He has been always regarded as the best accumulator of runs. Super elegance remained always the integral part of Mahela Jayawardene’s batting.

Jacques Kallis (South Africa)

Jacques Kallis

Total matches played at home: 88

Total runs scored at home: 7035

Batting Average at home: 56.73

Highest score: 224

Another gentleman cricketer who just announced his retirement. One of the best all rounders in the history of cricket, Jacques Kallis has scored runs in difficult situations at home too. You don’t often find batsman friendly conditions in South Africa, yet along with his masterful bowling Jacques Kallis has played some of the best batting innings for his country and that too playing at No. 3.

Sachin Tendulkar (India)

Sachin Tendulkar

Total matches played at home: 94

Total runs scored at home: 7216

Batting Average at home: 52.67

Highest score: 217

Perhaps the best batsman happened to cricket after Sir Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar has announced his retirement last year, but not before scoring bundles of runs at home. Although there is no question about his ability to score even in foreign conditions, Sachin Tendulkar has played some of the memorable innings before the crowed which still regard him as the ‘God of Cricket’!

Ricky Ponting (Australia)

Ricky Pontng

Total matches played at home: 92

Total runs scored at home: 7578

Batting Average at home: 56.97

Highest score: 257

Another great of the modern cricket, Ricky Ponting is at the top of the tree! Ponting was not only a consistent batsman but also a consistent captain for his team also. This duel responsibility did not stop him to score good number of runs at home.
