Five Famous Players Who Never Scored A Century In ODI History

Five Famous Players Who Never Scored A Century In ODI History

Scoring a century in cricket is a big achievement for any player, especially in the T20I format where there are only 20 overs. It’s quite challenging to reach this milestone in such a short span of time. On the other hand, ODI matches provide a bigger window of opportunity with 50 overs per side, giving batsmen a better chance to score a century. Surprisingly, even some legendary players in cricket history couldn’t reach the hundred-run mark in ODI cricket. This elite group consists of five well-known players.

Check out these Five Well-Known Players Who Have Never Hit a Century in ODI History:

Dinesh Karthik (India)

Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik, the wicketkeeper-batsman for India, completes the lineup. Despite participating in 94 ODIs, he has not reached a century yet. His highest ODI score is 79, and he has only achieved a century in Tests. Although scoring a century in ODIs is significant, players such as Karthik showcase skills and value that extend beyond mere statistics. Their displays in Test matches showcase the diverse facets of cricket and their extraordinary talents.

Misbah-ul-Haq (Pakistan)

Misbah-ul-Haq

Misbah-ul-Haq from Pakistan is the fourth cricketer we’re talking about. Despite his impressive record of scoring over 5000 runs in ODIs, he unfortunately never reached a century in that format.
