    Outside chance at best but it is possible, hard to see anyone else do it.

    Maybe a very very outside chance for Jacques Rudolph, has got 35 and he has just turned 29, would have to really churn them out but has an excellent record for Yorkshire. No idea if a return to international cricket is even remotely possible.

    Only other way it could again is if someone like Phillip Hughes never makes it with Australia and plays county cricket, no way I can see that happening though.

    Only an English or foreigner who plays county cricket stands an outside chance of doing it. It is a pretty steep task in today's cricket. Domestic First class cricket in England used to be played loads in the past and is a mere shadow in terms of no of matches now.

    Yeah it has stayed around 16 for a while, but that's probably why few batsman score 100 centuries.

    Can't really see anyone breaking it, because naturally all the guns play international cricket now and it's unlikely that someone will be that gun to do it despite less domestic exposure.

    Someone like Murray Goodwin has everything going for him: excellent player, plays/played cricket all year round, including county cricket, and his ability to plunder hundreds in domestic cricket has for several years been uninterrupted by international call-ups. However even he will really struggle to get to 100 hundreds. He has 62 at the age of 37. If he played into his mid-40s he might just get there, but it's obviously highly unlikely.

    How many did Langer end up with? 80+? Thought he might've had a chance if he'd have gone on another two or three seasons.

    Real possibility Ramps might be the last member of the club I'd say.

    Langer finished with 86, 23 of which were in Tests.

    Someone worked out recently that if a modern player like Alastair Cook were to do it he'd have to score about 70 of his 100s in Tests, highly improbable to say the least given that even SRT hasn't managed that many (and they don't play that much more Test cricket than 10-12 years ago). Though I'd have thought in Cook's case, the proportion of Test 100s would have to be even higher - how many CC matches does he play for Essex?

    As has been said already, it would have to be someone either not quite good enough or not eligible to play Test cricket.

    As an outside shout, how about Jacques Rudolph? 29 years old and has 35 hundreds, is a very good FC player who is unlikely to play internationally again (for either South Africa or England) and doubles up playing for both Yorkshire and Titans. If he decides to carry on playing in both the English and South African summers and carries on into his 40s he has a pretty good chance.

    I was referring to the era of say Hobbs when it was far more probable to score 100 centuries given there were more matches. It is far tougher now, almost improbable.
