5. Sunil Gavaskar’s remarkable records in Test cricket
The Indian opener, Sunil Manohar Gavaskar was the first batsman in the history of the game to accumulate 10,000 runs and score 30 centuries in Test cricket. Gavaskar was one of the burly pillars of the Indian batting line-up and the bowlers had to toil extremely hard for his prized wicket. Even the Mumbaikar had announced his arrival in Test cricket on a majestic scale. Sunny had amassed a record aggregate of 774 runs against the ferocious West Indies team in their own backyard at an average of 154.80. The gritty right-hander holds the record for most runs scored in a debut series by any batsman.
