Cricket is always a game of uncertainties with possibilities of ups and downs either for a team or an individual player. Speaking of some great Test batters who have ever played the game, then all of them have gone through a lean patch at any point in their whole celebrated career.
All these batters rank on the list of top run-getters in their international career. But there were also the times for them when they struggle through a poor run of form with the bat.
Here, we’ll have a look at the five batters who went through a thin period with their willow to make a strong comeback in the game.
Ricky Ponting (During 2000-01, 13 Innings)
Undoubtedly, one of the greatest skippers and batters of all time, Ricky Ponting was considered to be a legend of the game. It was because of the fact that he stunned everyone with his stellar performances at the beginning of his career.
But the period of 2000-01 came very unexpectedly for him when he had to go through a poor form after a 92-run knock against West Indies in the Adelaide encounter. He struggled for every run for a period of three months. He went on to hit the lows on Australia’s tour of India in 2001. But later on, in the year 2001, he stood up again and made a firm comeback in the Leeds Test of Ashes 2001 against England with a centurion knock of 144 runs.
