Since their played test series is too much as other, they are able to defeat any team and they, usually, play in very planned way. They have two players who have scored more than 10 test centuries: they are Wright (12 centuries) and Astle (11 centuries); but Fleming has the highest score in a single test inning and it is 274 (not out) runs as well as he has the highest total (7172) runs by playing 111 matches and 189 innings where he kept himself not out 10 times. Therefore, he could be at the top of the top ten player list of New Zealand in overall consideration. However, here is the list provided by the rank of considering total numbers of centuries scored where Wright is one of the retired players; but still at the top.

Top Ten Century Scorers of New Zealand in T20 Cricket 

New Zealand is the only team that has first world’s 20-20 centurion named B.B. McCullum (2005-2010). In the way of his century (first world T20 century), he made 116* and he kept himself not out on that event. The whole world has seen the first one and only 20-20 century from his bat; but now S.K. Raina (India, 2006-2010) has joined him with his single century of 101 runs. However, McCullum has the highest total runs in international 20-20 events—he made 1100 (highest runs in 20-20 history) runs by facing 857 balls in 40 matches. Since there are no other players, hence a list of century scorers from New Zealand team is given here including McCullum.

  • B.B. McCullum
  • L.R.P.L. Taylor
  • J.D. Ryder
None found.
