    Kohli could very well reach 100 international centuries. For other 3, I think they should be able to reach 100 tons (List A+First class).

    But then who knows, if TPC has his way, probably his international centuries could look like this.
    Tests - 80
    ODIs - 20
    6 test centuries per year for 9 years is improbable, but not impossible.

    Not outside the realms of possibility since he hardly plays any LOIs. Hasn't played a list A match for close to a year.

    He may play all three of CC, Ranji and Tests for the next few years.

    Wouldn’t bet on him reaching 100 though, especially given the knees.

    Yeah, a good point. This makes one wonder why he goes for those impossible singles in tests.

    Like why cant we invest in the ability to do hobbies instead of work rather than investing in terrible political parties and drone strikes?

    More like Australia white ball cricketers never play shield any more (e.g. Finch, Maxwell, Carey). Pure Test players like Harris and Paine will get to play most shield games now.

    The 'all forms' players like Smith and Warner are definitely lucky to get 1 shield game per year.

    Prithvi Shaw might be able to reach 100 FC hundreds if he does not consume cough syrup often.

    shiv chanderpaul has 77 first class hundreds.

    not sure if he has retired from first class cricket, he turns 45 later this week.

    his last f/c game was for lanc v surrey at the oval in 2018. he was one player i thought may have got to 100 centuries.

    Shiv was hurt by a slow start to his career. Didn't start churning out the tons frequently til he was nearly 30

    Also batting 5/6 couldn't have helped much either.

    AFAIK he's retired.

    Maybe that's a reason he was able to go on for so long. The earlier you start, the harder it might be to keep going well into your 30s. Whereas if you've started later you could have more motivation to go on longer.

    Something to consider

    Chanders actually did start quite young at Test level. His longevity is odd for that reason and also not having a very orthodox technique. Did batting 5/6 help in this regard? It did for Misbah, for example.
