    100 Hundreds

    The current list of people to have scored 100 first class hundreds stands at

    1 JB Hobbs 199
    2 EH Hendren 170
    3 WR Hammond 167
    4 CP Mead 153
    5 G Boycott 151
    6 H Sutcliffe 149
    7 FE Woolley 145
    8 L Hutton 129
    9 GA Hick 128
    GA Gooch 128
    11 WG Grace 126
    12 DCS Compton 123
    13 TW Graveney 122
    14 DG Bradman 117
    15 IVA Richards 114
    16 Zaheer Abbas 108
    17 A Sandham 107
    MC Cowdrey 107
    19 TW Hayward 104
    20 GM Turner 103
    JH Edrich 103
    LEG Ames 102
    22 E Tyldesley 102
    DL Amiss 102
    Hick was the last to join the club, the question is, with the amount of international cricket being played these days, meaning people play less FC cricket, will anyone join the club in future?

    Mark Ramprakash scored his 81st today, but he's 36 and doesn't have long left. He may be one of the last to make it. Matt Hayden has 74, Darren Lehman 75, but both are knocking on.

    Ricky Ponting has 64 and is 31, so he probably has a very good chance of getting there.

    Any others?

    Well, i'm guessing Boycott and Hoobs made quite a few of their centuries playing internaitonal cricket didn't they? Or is FC strictly domestic?

    no FC includes test matches, but in the past people would play a test one day and then play county the next. that doesn't happen now, some of the England players will only play a couple of non England FC games this year.

    For instance Boycott played 609 firstclass matches of which 108 were tests. only 22 of his 151 centuries came in test cricket

    Interesting topic Dave, well done. I'd never considered this before.

    You're mostly right I reckon, but then again every now and then a Graeme Hick will pop out of the woodwork. So there will be more additions to the list, but they'll just be a lot rarer.

    I've wondered about it when playing ICC...
    You see Hick with his 100 Hundreds and you look at your own amazingly good Batsman and they're lucky if they get 50 hundreds.

    The reason said earlier about less games in a season for a Test regular is true but also the length of careers needs to be taken into account - Hick retired in the last few years but he'd been playing for about 20 years - it's much harder for a player to be playing for 20 solid years now.

    None of them will get it. IMO it would have to be someone who played a hell of a lot of domestic cricket (England or India) and scored a lot of runs but never played many Tests due to better, in-form players being in the side and a few failures at 'A' team level. He would have to start playing from late teens to late thirties - 20 years, five tons a year?

    When did they upgrade Hobbs to 199? Every book I have ever read has the Master at 197
    You know it makes sense.

    Kevin Pietersen already has 23 FC centuries. Do you think he paid for a full photo shoot just for that pic?
