Not an easy task

In the current international cricket scenario, it is harder to score runs so for some player to regularly hit half-centuries is not an easy task.

Among the new talents in Indian cricket, players like Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav have scored 50+ runs regularly.

New Indian talents

Most players who have the most 50+ scores for India are already retired, with a number of them still involved in the sport.
Here is the full list.

Veterans on top

Leading this list is the Master Blaster, with 264 half centuries to his name. He is the only player to have 100 centuries across all formats as well.

Sachin Tendulkar

The former prolific skipper for India hit his 193rd half-century for India during their match against Hong Kong, helping India to an easy win.

With three of the five players on this list no more in the game, it will be interesting to see if the veterans of the team can bridge this gap. 

Can Kohli, Rohit catch up?
