Leading run-scorers in Champions Trophy 2017

The batsmen have surely enjoyed the new-found batting-friendly conditions in England. Good conditions to bat coupled with lopsided ground sizes have meant that runs have not been at a premium. Runs haven’t only flown from the willows of the Kohlis, Williamsons¬†and Roots but also the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and Tamim Iqbal, among others.

Indian opener Dhawan finished Champions Trophy 2017 as the highest run scorer, with 338 runs in five matches.
