5 cricketers who have scored the most Test centuries at a single venue
In some special cases, a particular batsman tends to find a mysterious affinity with a single venue.
Cricket is always characterized by numbers, stats, and figures. The dominance of a team, the greatness of a batsman, and the impact of a bowler is asserted through the numbers they have racked up over the years.
While perusing through the career of a batsman, the number of runs he scored in different countries and continents is always an important factor to consider. Some men tend to perform well at home, while others show their ability on away tours.
However, in some special cases, a particular batsman tends to find a mysterious affinity with a single venue. He does not know how to fail there and almost every time he takes the field there, he churns out admirable performances.
Let us take a look at five such cricketers who have scored the most Test centuries at a single venue:
#5 Michael Clarke: Adelaide Oval, 7 centuries
Michael Clarke's name will always be remembered fondly in Australian cricket. The young prodigy of the golden era of the Kangaroos, Clarke was a part of the team that conquered the world and also the team that fell through the ranks, a few years later.
However, he captained his country to glory once again and took his team to the World Number 1 ranking in Test cricket and clinching the ICC World Cup in 2015.
The Pup was particularly fond of the Adelaide Oval, where he scored as many as seven Test centuries. In the 17 innings that he has played on the ground, he has crossed at least 50 runs on ten occasions.
The former Australian skipper has an extraordinary batting average of 94.29 at the venue and has also scored two double centuries there in a single year - 230 against South Africa and 210 against India in 2012.
