There are various ways of scoring runs for the team. If a batter wants to score runs at a rate of knots, then he would obviously smash a flurry of boundaries and sixes to escalate the scoreboard.
Batters tend to play shots, especially inside the powerplay overs, which gives them plenty of freedom to hit fours and sixes. At the same time, running between the wickets is also a sensational skill, which nobody talks about.
Each and every run is important for the team and we have seen teams winning the game by 1 run. When it comes to Indian cricket, there were several batters who have been pretty good in terms of running between the wickets.
When players are fit as a fiddle, then it is quite easier for them to sprint between the wickets. One must understand that not every time batter scores a four or a six and which is why it is important to rotate the strike.
Now in this article, we will take a glimpse at three Indian players who scored more than 90 runs in a single ODI inning just by running between the wickets.
1. Virat Kohli
Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the only player in the history of Indian cricket to complete 100 runs by sprinting in an ODI inning, which is quite a spectacular feat. The 34-year-old stalwart accomplished the landmark against South Africa in 2018 during his valuable knock of 160 runs.
2. Sourav Ganguly
Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is the other name on this list who piled up plenty of runs just by sprinting between the wickets. During the second One-Day International of the 1999 Pepsi Cup, Ganguly sprinted as many as 98 runs before going on to score 130 runs against Sri Lanka. He smashed as many as 5 fours and 2 sixes.
3. Gautam Gambhir
Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is another name on this list who scored more than 90 runs in a single ODI inning. He achieved the feat against Sri Lanka wherein he scored 94 runs by running between the wickets during a bilateral series. Notably, he aggregated 150 off 137 deliveries including 14 fours.
