Top 10 Current Batsman with most centuries across formats: Scoring hundreds consistently is that art which not every artist of the game can master. Reaching the three-figure mark in any format brings a sense of achievement and bundles of joy for the batsman. But scoring hundred requires a huge appetite for runs, batting in a disciplined and dedicated manner relentlessly, staying calm when you are itching to break shackles and battling out those tough periods that define the art of batsmanship and character of an individual.
Being a kid getting in sync with the game in mid-2000s, things have changed and time has flown away rather quickly. At that time, the likes of ABD and Amla had just started while the likes of Kohli and Warner surfaced a bit later. And the trio of Williamson, Smith and Root still feel to me as if they have only just started.
But no, it isn’t the case, they are the reigning superstars of the game and their numbers speak for themselves. They have replaced the galaxy of stars like Sachin, Ponting, Lara, Warne, McGrath and likewise cricketers who once ruled the sport with some following.
And today, we have prepared an interesting list which encompasses the names of currently active cricketers who have been most consistent when it comes to scoring centuries. It includes centuries from all the international formats of the game.
Here’s the list of Top 10 Current Batsman with most centuries across formats:
10. Steven Smith (Australia) – 23
The Aussie skipper, Steven Smith has been in the form of his life in the last three years. Smith is a typical modern-day player and has his own ways of scoring runs. He might not play those beautiful shots and hence those attractive runs that mesmerize the eyes but if you can score at an average of 58.50 in Test cricket, it hardly matters how you get them. Smith is one of the best batsmen at present and is equally good when it comes to white-ball cricket. The unorthodox batsman has reached the three-figure mark 23 times out of 190 innings in international cricket across formats. Smith is also the youngest to appear in this list.
