10 Batters Scoring Most Centuries in the History of PSL
A Century in Twenty20 cricket is one of the most difficult feats, and scoring a century in the Pakistan Super League against Pakistan’s deadliest bowlers is even more tough. Here is the list of ten batsmen who scored the most centuries in the history of PSL.
Although T20 is traditionally a batsman’s game, we’ll be discussing some batting records today. While centuries are uncommon in this shortest version of the game, we only witness a few of them per season. It is less likely that a batsman would get a century since the game goes so rapidly.
