The Indian Premier League is a popular cricket tournament that follows the Twenty20 format and has become famous for its explosive batting and intense games. However, one feat that is quite difficult to achieve is obtaining one hundred points. In just 20 overs and hardly any warm-up time, the batsmen have to immediately start hitting hard to post a big total on the scoreboard. As such, scoring 50 is quite common in IPL, and cricketers have done so by playing just a handful of balls. However, scoring a century is something else. Due to the added pressure and increasingly ferocious bowling in the death overs, reaching a hundred becomes a challenge. However, some notable cricketers have managed to achieve this feat. We have listed the players with the most centuries in IPL history from 2008 to 2023.
