10. Ian Botham, England- 100 in 19 matches
Ian Botham, the best that English cricket has produced in a long time, was the once in a generation player who was a captain’s’ dream all-rounder. A dominant handsome cricketer, Botham quickly rose to fame as the premier all-rounder of his country in just 2 years. He took 2 years and 5 days to reach this milestone in a test against India in 1979 at Lord’s. A commentator these days, Botham was the man who rejuvenated the Ashes rivalry between the two nations since his Godman-like exploits in 1981. With his fair shares of ups and down throughout his career, Botham carved a name as one of the, if not the best cricketer the game has ever seen.
