International cricket has an exciting history with legendary players dominating the game, smashing their most international centuries and memorable big knocks. However, the cricketing condition has changed a bit over time, which has helped produce the top batters of the era. Let’s look at the list of players with most international centuries.
1. Sachin Tendulkar
The god of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, stands at the top of our list of batters with the most international centuries for his outstanding unbreakable performance throughout his cricketing journey. The 16-year-old boy from Mumbai, Maharashtra, became the famous and youngest cricket to play against treacherous Pakistani pacers back in time.
The God of Cricket registered his maiden century against England at quite a young age. After his first, Sachin Tendulkar got the hook of his game and successfully registered a total of 100 international centuries in the history of cricket. Indeed, he’s a legend for a reason, and his record of the maximum international century is hard to break by any current ear batsmen.
2. Virat Kohli
The former Indian cricket team captain becomes the second batsman hailing from India to reach the mark of highest international centuries after veteran Sachin Tendulkar. Well, just like his mentor and one he admires, Virat Kohli is following the same path as the master blaster in terms of hitting great innings of his lifetime.
Kohli registered his 71st century against Afghanistan in Aisa Cup after long years. To no surprise, Virat’s knock was unique and essential for him while regaining his form. Meanwhile, the former captain also broke the record of Rohit Sharma’s 118 against Sri Lanka by smashing the highest T20I hundred of 122 not out.
3. Ricky Ponting
The most successful captain in cricket World Cup history, Ricky Ponting, hit 71 international centuries in his career. Until Virat Kohli knocked 122 against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup, Ponting stood second on the list. The former Australian captain registered his first century against Sri Lanka in a tri-series. Ricky Ponting has forever shown dominance, consistency, and motivation in his game, which also helped him become the most flourishing captain of all time amongst other captains.
