  • Usman Khawaja
  • Ben Duckett (WK)
  • Joe Root
  • Virat Kohli
  • Kane Williamson
  • Travis Head
  • Ben Stokes (Captain)
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Pat Cummins
  • Mitchell Starc
  • Mohammed Siraj

Usman Khawaja and Ben Duckett will open for us in the Test team of the year 2023. Both have been in excellent form in 2023 and have made runs all over the globe. Khawaja has accumulated 1210 runs in 13 Test matches in 2023 while Ben Duckett has amassed 654 runs in just 8 matches.

Joe Root, Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson form the formidable middle order of the Test team of the year 2023. Root has been exceptional for England with 787 runs in 8 matches. Kohli has also found his mojo back by scoring 595 runs in 8 matches. Kane Williamson is always up there with his knack of sticking around the wicket. He scored 695 runs in 7 matches in Test cricket this year.

Travis Head and Ben Stokes at number six and seven respectively are the best attacking options. They have displayed tremendous success lower down the order and deserve to be in the Test team of the year 2023. Ben Stokes is also our captain with his aggressive brand of cricket that is changing the Test cricket for good. Head has scored 911 runs in 12 matches in 2023. He has also taken crucial wickets.

Ravindra Jadeja is a no brainer in the best Test team of the year 2023. He has picked 33 wickets in 7 matches thi year and has also scored 281 runs with the bat. Jadeja is effective even on the pitches which do not support the spin bowlers.

Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Mohammed Siraj round up our Test team of the year 2023. Starc with his left-arm seam is always an x-factor and a wicket-taker. Siraj’s swing can bring the early breakthroughs while Pat Cummins doggedness is always there to create something out of nothing.
