Top 10 Players with most number of T20 centuries
It has been 9 years since the revolutionary 2007 T20 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, the format has evolved enormously over the years, providing unlimited entertainment in the process. Scoring a century in the 50-over format was considered a big achievement back then (not that it isn’t now), but scoring a century in the T20 format was a bigger challenge and that was accomplished by the West Indian batsman Chris Gayle in the very first match of the 2007 World Cup against hosts South Africa.
Over the years we have witnessed some terrific innings by players from all over the world and the list just keeps getting bigger as the time progresses. Here is a list of the players who have scored the most number of centuries in the International and the domestic stage.
10) Unmukt Chand (3 centuries)
2012 U-19 World Cup winner Unmukt Chand features on this list of most number of T20 centuries by a player. The Delhi-born player made his domestic debut in 2010 for Delhi in the February of 2010. Chand showed flashes of his potential, scoring 25 runs in his debut List-A game.
With his reputation increasing as a top-order batsman, Chand soon made his debut in the T20 format as well for Delhi but could manage only 5 runs. That, however, did not stop him from blossoming into the shortest format of cricket.
Chand has scored 3 centuries in the T20 format, with a high score of 125 coming against Gujarat. The 23-year-old has managed to score a couple of hundreds against Gujarat and a single hundred against Kerala (105). With an aggressive approach in batting style resembling Virat Kohli, Chand played a key role in the U-19 2012 World Cup in Australia, where he managed to score a century against Australia in the final.
Chand was soon picked in the IPL for the Delhi Daredevils but could not perform to his full potential and has faced a severe dip in form since then.
