Cricket: As a batsman in international cricket, every player wants to play some big and memorable innings for his country. It is the dream of every player to win his team on the strength of his batting.
When a batsman plays a big inning, it proves beneficial not only to him but also to the team, although there are many players who are unable to convert their big innings into a century.
When the batsmen reach the score of more than 90 times, they get nervous and lose their wickets, seeing their century ahead, in cricket terms, it is called ‘Nervous Nineties’.
Keeping this in mind, today we are going to tell you about the three players who have been out the most times between 90 and 100 runs in all three forms of international cricket.
Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid has played cricket for India internationally from 1996 to 2012.
Rahul has played 164 Tests and 344 ODIs for India. Playing in Test cricket, Rahul has scored 13,288 runs for India and 10,889 runs in ODIs and during this time he has also scored 48 centuries.
While Rahul Dravid, who has done well for India in the 2000s, especially in Test cricket, has scored many runs in front of the biggest bowlers, there are many occasions where Dravid missed out on a few runs to score a century.
In 605 innings played internationally, Dravid has been out for 90 or more 14 times and is third in the list.
AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers, known as ‘Mr. 360 °’, is known for scoring runs in all four directions of the cricket field.
De Villiers, who played international cricket from 2004 to 2018, has played a total of 484 innings in all three formats and has scored 20,014 runs at an average of 48.11.
During his career, de Villiers has played many big and important innings for his country and during this time he has scored 47 centuries.
However, de Villiers has also been the victim of ‘Nervous Nineties’ many times and in his 484 innings played, he has been out 14 times for a score of more than 90 and has missed a century.
One can be surprised to see the name of Sachin Tendulkar who has scored 100 centuries at number one on this list. Sachin Tendulkar is also the victim of the ‘Nervous 90s’, the highest century in world cricket.
In his 782 innings played internationally, Sachin has 34,357 runs in his name, although in spite of this, Sachin has been dismissed 28 times at a score of 90 or more and 28 such occasions have been made where the entire Indian fans with Sachin have been made. Heart is broken
