Top 10 Fastest Centuries in Test CricketAnother left-handed batsman from Australia to make the cut in the list, Adam Gilchrist was a joy to watch. His innocent character, determination and confidence helped him enjoy his cricket career to the most. Counted amongst the great wicket keepers of all time, he was equally good with the bat. Whether he was sent as a 7th down player or opened with Mathew Hayden, he proved to be dangerous whenever he was on the pitch, Gilly is the leading glove man in test cricket surpassing Mark Boucher’s record. He holds a stunning test record with the bat hitting 17 tons in 96 matches out of which his 57 ball century at Perth against England in 2006 makes him the third fastest player to score a century in test cricket. His strike rate of 82 in tests signifies the quality of cricket he could play. He is an example to look up to when it comes to performing under pressure.
