Top 3 Century Scorers of Zimbabwe in T20 Cricket

As we all know that 20-20 (or T20) is a kind of fastest form of modern cricket game and it is very difficult in sense of making a century in a single innings due to shortage of “Overs,” the 20-20 means each team will get only 20 Overs to bat while other team will make balling and fielding. At present, except B.B. McCullum (New Zealand) and S.K. Raina (India), no other players of any team have a 20-20 century, even the both mentioned players have single century of 116 (not out) and 101, respectively. Therefore, they are the two legends of 20-20 cricket tournaments so far until other players join them.nHowever, the following three players are doing well with their bating in 20-20 cricket of Zimbabwean cricket team.
