In the ongoing match between Australia and Pakistan, Labuschagne was involved in a 361-run stand with David Warner and this is now the highest partnership in a day-night Test.

India's Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane also feature in the top five as they registered 745 and 642 runs respectively this year.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is currently on the fourth spot after registering 746 runs.

Agarwal and Rahane won't get a chance to add more runs in the Test format as India would not be playing any more matches in the longest format this year. (ANI)
