WTC 2023-25 Cycle: Yashasvi Jaiswal Tops Chart For Highest Run-Getters

Young India opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is currently leading the charts for the highest run-getters after a brilliant performance against West Indies and England in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 table, as per the ICC official website.
