Stats: Batsmen with most international runs at the age of 19

Let's look at batsmen with most international runs at the age of 19.

Cricket is generally known as a batsman’s game these days as compared to earlier when both batting and bowling tended to be more balanced. Yet, there were batsmen who shone earlier even as teenagers and broke records at a very young age. If we talk about cricketing stats and particularly batting records, it is a crime to not speak about Sachin Tendulkar because he created and broke so many records during his international career for India.

There is no surprise here as well because he holds the record of scoring the most international runs as a teenager. An interesting fact is that there are many batsmen from Pakistan and Bangaldesh on this list and just two Indian batsmen apart from Sachin Tendulkar. This list contains batsmen who have made more than 500 runs when their age was 19 or lesser.

Here are the batsmen with most international runs at the age of 19:
