Bowlers will certainly have an advantage due to their familiarity with their home field, favorable pitches, and supportive spectators. Some batsmen, though, have excelled and scored a lot of runs on opposition territory throughout the history of Test cricket, not just a few.

When it comes to getting the most runs in a test cricket game, it’s easy to guess who is the best run machine.
