2) Shubman Gill – 7 Centuries

Shubman Gill with the most international centuries in 2023.

Team India’s king and prince shares pretty good bond on the field and in the stats as well. Shubman Gill is going through the peak performance of his career till now, The 7 heroic hundreds of Shubman Gill in 47 games led him in to the 2nd place in terms of smashing most centuries in 2023 in all formats.

Shubman Gill started 2023 on a very good note as he made his first ever double hundred in international cricket against New Zealand by scoring 208 runs out of 149 balls. Later on, he continued his form not only in ODI and Test but also in T20I cricket where he used to considered as mediocre batsman by many cricket fans and experts, but he proved it wrong when he hit fastest hundred in T20I.

3) Daryl Mitchell – 6 Centuries

Daryl Mitchell is the 3rd player with most number of hundreds in 2023 in all formats.

The lad has absolutely stood out for his nation New Zealand whenever it required the most, whether it is WTC or ODI world cup 2023, his batting did not stopped scoring hundreds as he ended up with 6 centuries by playing 52 innings in year 2023. Daryl Mitchell might did not got enough limelight for his phenomenal performances but he surely deserves a moment of appreciation.

Having prominent players like Williamson and Latham in the team and surpassing them in terms of most centuries in 2023 requires a level of standard and strong ability, and Daryl Mitchell clearly has all those traits. Talking about his best score in this year which came in world cup where he made 134 runs against India in a high pressure game.

4) Quinton De Kock – 5 Centuries

De kock has scored most centuries in 2023.

In my opinion Quinton De Kock deserves to be on the number 1 in this entire list because the amount of innings he took to score 5 hundreds is quite unbelievable. When all the other star players played 35-40 innings in order to complete 6-7 centuries, Quinton De Kock shattered 5 centuries by playing only 23 matches in year 2023.

Moreover South Africa’s iconic opener, Quinton De Kock has been retired from the ODI format post world cup 2023. He was playing his last matches of his ODI career in the world cup and he has been excellent in the all of the games which they played. Out of his 5 hundreds, 4 came in the world cup 2023 itself with his explosive batting.

5) Najmul Hossain Shanto – 5 Centuries

Another young emerging batsman from Bangladesh, Najmul Hossain Shanto who is 25 years old has established himself as a explosive batter in white ball format and reliable in test cricket. Shanto usually plays on number three batting position where he scored 5 centuries in 37 innings in all three formats of the game.

Bangladesh cricket was showing faith in Shanto from a while and he surely did not disappointed Bangladeshi fans and its cricket board with his impressive knocks which he has played this year, especially in world cup. I believe if he has the potential to reach pretty good level in international cricket if he can refine his batting and hold his nerve a bit. Shanto’s highest score in 2023 is 146 runs.

N.H.Shanto 5 37 146

 

6) Devon Conway – 5 Centuries

Devon conway has made most number of 100 in 2023.

New Zealand’s current opener batsman, Devon Conway is having quite a wonderful year. Earlier he was in the the list of leading run scorer in ipl 2023 and now with the help of his 5 hundreds in 39 innings makes him 6th player with the most centuries in 2023 in all formats. Devon is someone who can bat in various different conditions be it subcontinent, England, or his own home nation.

However, Conway made his maiden ODI hundred in 2023 year against Bangladesh by scoring 126 runs from 110 balls, later on he understood the art of scoring 100s and ended up having 5 centuries in 2023 international cricket. In my opinion, currently he is the most stylish and classy left handed batsman you will find in the world, His elbow, head position, and footwork is something to watch out.

Devon Conway 5 39 152*

 

7) Temba Bavuma – 4 Centuries

South African captain Temba Bavuma is usually gets trolled for lack of consistency in his batting performance for his national team. However, the stats is showing completely different story as he managed to made 4-hundreds in 24 innings only and became the 8th player to have most international centuries in 2023 in all formats of the game.

Temba Bavuma is certainly not one of those player who relies hugely on their muscle power, he is someone who trust his timing and bat speed which he has been very good at it in entire 2023 year, except few matches during the world cup. However, captain Bavuma led the Proteas in the semi-final where they could not able to cross Aussies.

8) Fakhar Zaman – 4 Centuries

Pakistan did not able fulfill the expectations of their fans and PCB in ICC world cup 2023 and Asia cup where they did not even qualified for semis. However in all these unsatisfactory performances, Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman did not let himself down and showcased his excellence by scoring 4 centuries by playing 22 matches for his nation.

Furthermore, Fakhar Zaman recently became the fastest player to make 3000 ODI runs for pakistan during the world cup games. Fakhar Zaman has the ability to adapt both aggressive and passive approach especially in limited overs format according to the situation of the match. His highest inning of 180 runs in 144 balls was against Kiwis in April, 2023 at Rawalpindi ground.

9) David Malan – 4 Centuries

England's David Malan made in to the list of most 100s in 2023.

England typically known for its high strike batters except David Malan who plays like an typical ODI player. I am not saying he is not capable of batting with 150 plus strike rate, I am referring that his best comes out when he sticks with his natural batting playstyle which is playing around 90-100 of batting strike rate in ODI cricket, as he mostly plays 50-over format only for England.

Talking about his centuries in international cricket 2023, he stands on 9th rank with the 4 magnificent hundred runs knock by playing 25 matches including all three formats. However, England has disappointed everyone with their performance in world cup but opener David Malan played his best inning of 2023 against Bangladesh with the knock of 140 runs from 107 balls.

David Malan 4 25 140

 

10) Aiden Markram – 4 Centuries

Moving on to the our final 10th contender in the list of most centuries in 2023 in all formats, which goes to the South African number 4 batter, Aiden Markram for his remarkable 4-centuries in 33 matches in the entire 2023 calendar year. Actually playing at the number 4 and scoring 4-hundreds is definitely a tough task for batsman to do, but Markram’s has done it quite easily.

Almost all of the Proteas batters can play seam bowling quite easily because their have been grown up to that raw pace and swing which South African pitches offer, but to play spin bowling so efficiently in the middle overs is actually a interesting thing to watch in Aiden Markram’s batting. Probably that’s the reason why South African cricket board has showing trust in him from a long time.

Aiden Markram 4 33 175
