Who will score a test century first

Postby Alviro Patterson » Wed Dec 26, 2018 10:42 pm

Two cricketers now at the peak of their careers, Jeetan Raval and Timothy Paine seem to be settled in international cricket but are both yet to register a test match hundred.

For a bit of fun, who will score their maiden test match hundred first?

Jeet most likely....on thin ice though.

Maybe Raval can take the record for most runs without a ton. I think this belongs to Mike Brearley (maybe Gavaskar's partner Chetan Chauhan next).

Completely wrong, it's Warne and he's along way off. Chauhan is second though.

It is those two of specialist bats though.

Jeet Raval has registered his maiden test century in the 1st test match against Bangladesh, the resulting shot also brought up 1000 test runs for Raval :clap

Voting is now closed :D
