New Delhi: There is more than one batsman in Indian cricket history, who has scored runs and centuries, but do you know that there have been some unlucky batsmen who have never scored a Test century in their career. Huh. Many shocking names are included in this list. Let’s take a look at some of the top 3 batsmen:
1. Abhinav Mukund
Abhinav Mukund made it to the Indian team in the year 2011 as an opener. After performing consistently well in domestic cricket, Abhinav Mukund got a chance to make his Test debut for the Indian team. Although Abhinav Mukund could not perform very well in his career. Abhinav Mukund has played only 7 test matches for the Indian team, in which he scored 320 runs and did not score any century. Let us tell you that he could never make it to the ODI and T20 team also. In Test cricket, he did not take any advantage after getting the opportunity as an opener. His best score in Test matches is 81 runs. This is the reason why Mukund could never woo the selectors. Due to which he had to leave the team.
2. Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra was also never able to score a single century for India in Test cricket as an opener. Akash Chopra, who made his debut against New Zealand in 2003, could not score a century as an opener. Aakash Chopra played Test cricket for only one year for the Indian team, in which he scored 437 runs in 10 matches. But he could not score a single century. Aakash Chopra has scored two half-centuries in Test matches. His highest score in Test is 60 runs. Aakash Chopra had to be out of the Indian team due to poor performance, due to which his career also ended.
3. Ajay Jadeja
Ajay Jadeja was also one of the few cricketers who had never scored a century in his Test career as an opener. Although he has scored 6 centuries in ODIs. Ajay Jadeja made his Test debut in 1992 against South Africa and played 15 Test matches in his entire Test career, but failed to score a single Test century. Ajay Jadeja had reached close to the century, but could not complete it. Ajay Jadeja’s highest score in Test career is 96 runs.
