    100 against ALL test playing nations

    Jacques Kallis scored a magnificent 100 against Sri Lanka @ Newlands. That's his 1st test century against Sri Lanka which puts him in the category of very few batsmen who scored 100 against ALL test playing nations.

    Gary Kirsten
    Steve Waugh
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Rahul Dravid
    Marvan Atapattu
    Brian Lara
    Ricky Ponting
    Mahela Jayawardene
    Adam Gilchrist
    Kumara Sangakkara ( scored 150 against ALL teams )
    Jacques Kallis

    I think I am missing someone...dont really remember who!

    Champs who couldnt achieve it ( not yet!! ) :

    Kevin Pietersen ( No ton against BD - HS 99 )
    Inzamam-ul-Haq ( No ton against SAF - HS 96 )
    Mohammad Yusuf ( No ton against SAF - HS 83 )
    Matthew Hayden ( No ton against BD - HS 72 )
    Ali Cook ( No ton against NZL - HS 61 )
    Micheal Clarke ( No ton against BD - HS 23* )
    Micheal Vaughan ( No ton against ZIM - HS 20 )
    Ian Bell ( Did not play against the ZIM )

    Are we allowing weight gain in specific countries to count?

    A function of how much they play against all teams, I daresay. No surprise to see those who are one short have missed out against the sides they'll barely play.

    Kallis has been a fantastic batsman for too long now and deserves this.

    Bangladesh seem to have stymied a few players from achieveing this.

    Do you have a consistent rule here on Zimbabwe, given that they've only just regained test status? Bell's ton at Trent bridge gave him a complete set of eight at the time.

    Garry Sobers and Bradman should be in the list
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I looked up Javed Miandad's record and he doesn't have a ton against the Zimbos. What a loser

    What about a century in every country?

    A century against every test playing country is a pretty meaningless thing to be honest. 5 centuries against Bangladesh, Zimbabwe or the West Indies team from a few years ago are hardly comparable in achievement to one against a half decent side in a series which actually means something/

    Haha, the fact Pietersen's missing from this list because he's only scored 99 against Bangladesh tells you everything about how meaningless this record is.

    He hasn't faced Zimbabwe either. Having said that, I don't see why it renders the achievement "meaningless" - the fact that he hasn't been prepared to knuckle down & score the ton is hardly something to be praised.

    Haha, it's neither to be praised or condemned. A player does not suddenly become crap, nor does his record become meaningless because he's not scored a century against a crap team.

    Let's say he finishes his career with an average in the mid 50s having scored over 10,000 runs (not that this is likely to happen) but it's not like someone would then go "wait wait...he's no good, look at this, no century against Zimbabwe! tut tut",
