Runs and tons increasing in IPL! 20 of 100 centuries scored since 2023 edition

Since Brendon McCullum’s explosive 158* marked the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Bengaluru on April 18, 2008, it’s been quite a journey to reach the 100th-century milestone. Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill achieved this feat against Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium on May 10, 2024. Surprisingly, while it took 16 years for the initial 80 centuries, the last 20 came in just one year.

Virat Kohli leads the pack with an impressive eight centuries, closely followed by England’s Jos Buttler with seven. Chris Gayle follows with six, while Shubman Gill and KL Rahul each have four to their name.
