Greatness of a cricketer is always measured by their performance away from the home. Playing Test Cricket on foreign soil is always considered to be the toughest job for a cricketer. We often notice that bowlers struggle to find their length and line in overseas test matches. While many falter, there are some who thrive on such challenges. Players who perform well overseas make a name for themselves in the history of the sport.
In the article, we take a look at the 5 Indian Bowlers with the most wickets on foreign soil in Test cricket:
5. Harbhajan Singh (152 Wickets)
Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has bagged 152 Test wickets on foreign soil. The off-spinner, is also second after the great Muttiah Muralitharan in the list, of most wickets in Test Cricket by an off-spinner.
