#5 Cheteshwar Pujara (India) - 3 centuries

Australia v India - 1st Test: Day 1

Cheteshwar Pujara had a sore start to 2018 as he was regularly dropped from the team. However, the Saurashtra born batsman made sure that he cements his place once again in the playing XI before the year ends. Pujara scored 3 centuries for India, and most importantly, all these centuries were scored overseas.

He scored his first 100 of the year at the Rose Bowl in England which helped him retain his place in the squad for Australia. Later in the year, his batting skills helped India win two Test matches Down Under as his 123 and 106 played a huge role in turning the game in India's favour at Adelaide and Melbourne.
