#4 Matthew Hayden - 6154 runs

1st Test - Australia v West Indies - Day 3
Hayden has scored more runs than any Test opener in a winning cause

One of the finest openers during his time, Matthew Hayden scored 8625 runs in Test cricket. Out of those, 6154 have come in winning causes, which is 71.3% of his total Test runs. This is the highest percentage on this list. Hayden has scored more Test runs in a winning cause than any other opener. Hayden scored these runs from123 innings, averaging 55.44.

Several of Hayden’s magnificent Test knocks resulted in Australia winning the match. 23 of Hayden’s 30 Test centuries came in a winning cause. As a matter of fact, his epic 380 against Zimbabwe at Perth in 2003 also came in a winning cause. No wonder his retirement was a massive loss to Australian cricket.
