Most IPL Centuries: It is every batsman’s dream to smash an IPL century for his team when he steps onto the field. However, because there is so little time to achieve the milestone in T20 cricket, we rarely see players score centuries. This is also true in the world’s most famous T20 league, the IPL. The Indian Premier League has had 14 seasons in its 14-year history. The IPL 2021 tournament has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it will resume in September-October of this year. Over the course of the Indian Premier League’s 14 seasons, there have been numerous nail-biting and thrilling matches.
Because a T20 match only has 20 overs per side, hitting a century in the T20 game is a huge accomplishment. So far in the Indian Premier League, 38 batsmen have scored a century. There are a few players among these who have smashed centuries in the tournament multiple times. In this article, we look at the five batsmen who have the most IPL centuries.
