Shikhar Dhawan is the highest run-scorer in Team India’s debut Test match.
Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, and Ajinkya Rahane are the well-known names of Team India. All three have been a great contributor to Indian cricket so far and this journey is still going on. While Shikhar Dhawan is playing the role of opener for Team India, KL Rahul is now serving the team as a wicketkeeper-batsman in the team. Ajinkya Rahane is the vice-captain of the Test team, but he is playing less ODI and T20. These three have played many useful innings for the team on many occasions and a wonderful record is recorded in the name of these three.
For India, many players made their debut in all three formats of cricket i.e. Tests, ODIs and T20s, but these three players have won the game in terms of scoring the most runs in their first match in all three formats. Talking about Test cricket, Shikhar Dhawan had scored 187 runs in his first match in this format of cricket. For India, no one was able to score more runs in the first innings of his first match than Dhawan before whom he made his Test debut.
KL Rahul had recorded an amazing record in his name by playing an unbeaten 100-run innings in his debut ODI for India. He is the batsman to score a century in his debut match or the highest run-scorer in a debut ODI.
Talking about T20 International cricket, Rahane has not been playing in this format for India for a long time, but he is the highest run-scorer for India in his debut match in the shortest format of cricket. Rahane had scored 61 runs in his first T20 International match and so far no other batsman has scored more than this in his debut match in T20.
