IPL: Top 5 teams with the most centurions
To score a hundred is always a big moment in the career of any batsmen and to score it in the shortest format of the game makes it even more memorable.
Indian Premier League is amongst the most popular cricket leagues in the world and is loved by cricket fans across the globe. It has seen many players scoring a century in a match and playing a vital role for the team.
A total of 47 centuries have been scored by 30 different batsmen in the last ten seasons of the IPL. Players from eight of the eleven franchises have scored centuries; the only franchises that have not had a player score a century for them are Pune Warriors India, Kochi Tuskers Kerala, and Gujarat Lions.
Right on this note, let us look at the top 5 IPL teams with the most number of centurions.
#5 Royal Challengers Banglore
We have the Royal Challengers Bangalore at number five on this list. They are one of the few teams on this list who have never lifted the IPL trophy.
Nevertheless, the Royal Challengers have always been a squad with the best of batsmen in the world of cricket which is proven by the fact that they have a total tally of 12 centuries in the last ten editions of the IPL.
Four of their players have scored a hundred and Manish Pandey was the one to score their inaugural century. Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, and AB de Villiers have scored 11 more centuries since then. They have won all the matches in which they have scored a century except one match against the Gujarat Lions in 2016.
Chirs Gayle holds the record for the highest number of centuries in the IPL (five). He has been bought by the King XI Punjab this season and will be playing for them.
