List of batsmen to score 3000+ runs in all three formats of cricket
Only four batsmen have scored more than 3000 runs in all formats of cricket.
There are many brilliant batters going around in modern-day cricket at the moment. Some are specialised in one particular format, while others have really good records in two out of three formats. But to perform consistently across three formats, a batter needs a special skillset.
This article is also about batters who are from different leagues. Here we will talk about the batsmen who have scored 3000 or more runs in all three formats of the game. Only four players have achieved this landmark until now. So let’s check out this elite list of batters.
Here are the four batsmen who have scored 3000+ runs in all three formats of the game:
1. Virat Kohli:
Former Indian captain Virat Kohli is at the top of this list because he is the only batter in the world to have scored more than 4000 runs across all three formats.
