The term ‘century’ in cricket specifically refers to one hundred runs within a single innings. A batsman is aiming to score a century as this is a significant personal achievement and it’s also one that is likely to help his or her team win the match.
Scoring centuries in a cricket match is an art that is mastered by many superstars of the modern era.Cricket is considered the game of batsman up to a great extent. If a player scores 100 runs in any match, it is called the century of that match. The top-order batsmen have more chance to hit the century because they have the chance to play more balls.
