IPL started with a bang with Mccullum's blitzkrieg against RCB

There aren't many landmarks that come close to a cricketer than scoring a hundred. When that landmark is achieved in a T20 game, it becomes all the more special considering the fact that you only get 40-50 deliveries to smash a ton in this format. 

IPL, the epitome of the shortest format in the game, has seen as many as 47 centuries have been hit so far by 30 different batters. It is worth noting that nine of the twelve franchises till date have had a centurion in their ranks. Only Sahara Pune Warriors, Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Gujarat Lions did not see a playing hitting a ton in their colours. 

On that note, let's take a look at the list of the number of centuries hit by each IPL sides in 10 seasons of the competition: 


#9 Kolkata Knight Riders (1 century)

KKR has just one and only century to its name in 10 years. The century which was scored in the first-ever game of the Indian Premier League. The stadium was M Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru, whereas the opponents were Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

Brendon Mccullum opened the innings for KKR and smashed a sensational 158 not out from 73 balls. That inning set the tone for the rest of the competition with Baz's inning still being one of the most memorable ones. Sadly for KKR, they have also conceded the most centuries in IPL with seven tons against their name. 

Not many T20 knocks can come close to this.
