Given that cricket is a game that is played in many countries across the globe, domestic tournaments ensure that more and more talent is unearthed to add more strength to the national outfits.

#10 Vijay Merchant [India]

Cricket Team

One of the most consistent domestic level batsmen that India has produced over time, Vijay Merchant holds the record for the highest batting average at the domestic level with 71.64, representing Mumbai.

Opening the batting at the domestic and international circuit, Merchant enjoyed a rather successful career. Although he represented India only in 10 test matches, the Mumbaikar had a healthy batting average to his profile with 859 runs from 10 matches.

In a career that spanned 18 years, Merchant was unfortunate to play only 10 test matches but made up at the domestic level and was one of the biggest influences in many victories for Mumbai.
