10 Most Prolific Indian Batting Pairs in Test Cricket History
The season of T20 cricket is over now, and its time to concentrate more on the longer format of the game. With the one-off test match against test debutants Afghanistan, India will begin the season that will see them face some of the best team in the World in test matches.
India has been one of the best team in the longest format in the past few years and will hope to continue this memorable run in the next 12 months as well.
Famous for their formidable batting line up since the late 1970s, India has produced some of the best batsmen to have ever graced the pitch.
Not just that, some of those legends have even got together to form pairs that have given chills to the fiercest of bowlers in the world and scored heavily when they batted with each other.
As a tribute to all these players, we take a look at 10 most prolific Indian batting pairs in test cricket.
