List of players with the most centuries in Test cricket

Cricket competition is the traditional form of cricket and continues to attract fans to this day. Many new formats such as One-Day International and Twenty20 have emerged over the years and become more popular and preferred than Test cricket, but the latter represents the original way of playing cricket.

There are tournaments and championships for Test cricket and they still draw huge crowds to the stadiums. High scores are the priority of the batting team and fast hitting is the bowling team’s priority. The pitchers tend to shine in the Cricket Test because of the nature of the pitch and the location on the field. However, the batters also performed very well in the Test matches.

Players have scored double, triple and quadruple in the century of cricket testing. Below you can check the list of players with up to a hundred tests.

The Player with the Most Experimental Centuries

#1 Sachin Tendulkar

India’s Sachin Tendulkar is known as the “God of Cricket” and for good reason. He is the most successful pitcher of the century and holds many unbreakable records in cricket. One of such records is from the most verified centuries. Tendulkar has scored 51 hundred points in his illustrious Test career and is also the top scorer in Test cricket. He made 15,921 runs in 200 games and 329 plays. Tendulkar’s strike rate of 54.04 and an average of 53.78 is also impressive, considering the games he’s played. Tendulkar’s record of scores in the hundreds in the Tests will be forever undefeated as the next 10 players retire after him and those who come after them grow old.

South Africa Jacques Kallis has the second highest Experimental century. Kallis scored 45 centuries in 280 plays for a career total of 13,289. Kallis was a surprise entry as most fans know him as a pitcher. However, Kallis is equally adept with bats and balls and is considered the most all-round player of all time.

#3 Ricky Bridge

Ponting is widely regarded as one of the most successful captains in cricket history and also an accomplished tennis player. He scored 41 hundredths in 287 innings with a strike rate of 58.72 and an average of 51.85.
