List of Indian players to play 100 Tests in Cricket history

Test cricket is often referred to as the purest format of the game. Playing a Test match is every cricketer’s dream and not everyone gets a direct entry to represent the country in the longest format of the game, especially in India.

There are several cricketers who couldn’t get an opportunity to play Tests for a long period of time. The ones who have produced consistent performances every now and then have cemented their spot in the Test team.
