Virat Kohli leads the run charts in Australia. He has made 992 runs at an average of 62, including 5 centuries. Who could forget his twin centuries at Adelaide in 2014?
Virat Kohli, with his knocks of 115 and 141 in the two innings of the Test, had become only the second player to score twin centuries on his captaincy debut.
Murali Vijay had a series to remember as well, he amassed 482 runs at an average of 60.42. Ajinkya Rahane also made an impact as he made 399 runs at an average of 57.00.
Though KL Rahul had a sorry debut in Melbourne, he announced himself on the international circuit in Sydney with a hundred (110). However, both Dhawan and Pujara had an outing to forget.
Although Dhawan leads the run charts in New Zealand, he struggled in Australia, England and South Africa. Cheteshwar Pujara has an excellent record in South Africa but failed in England and New Zealand, while he had average outings in Australia and West Indies.
