2 Players who have scored a century in T20 World Cup, previouly, will play in 2022 WT20

Scoring a century in T20 cricket is a big ask for any batter, because there is not much time for batters. In this format, a good 30 or 50 is considered a good innings. But still, there are a few batters who have crossed the three-figure mark in the T20 already. However, talking about the history of the T20 World Cup, there have been only nine centuries scored in all seven editions of the T20 WC so far.

Chris Gayle holds the record for two hundreds in the ICC event. But do you know there are two batters who will take part in the upcoming event in Australia who have also hit a century in the T20 World Cup earlier? Both batters are from England team. Only two players have a world cup hundred among all of these players.

1. Alex Hales (116* off 64 balls) vs Sri Lanka in 2014 T20 World Cup

The veteran English opener, Alex Hales, became only the fifth player to score a century when he scored a hundred against Sri Lanka in the 2014 T20 World Cup. In the 22nd game of the tournament at Chattogram, Sri Lanka made 189/4 in their 20 overs, with Mahela Jayawardene (89) top scoring for his team.

But in response, England lost two early wickets without any runs in the very first over. But after that, Hales, along with Eoin Morgan (57), helped his team chase down the target. He scored a brilliant century and remained not out on 116* off 64 balls with 11 fours and 6 sixes, and England chased down the target in 19.2 overs and made 190/4. Hales also won the "Man of the Match" for his brilliant century.

2. Jos Buttler (101* off 67 balls) vs Sri Lanka in 2021 T20 World Cup

The last batter century in the T20 World Cup came in the 2021 WT20 in the UAE. And it came from the bat of English swashbuckling opener Jos Buttler, who will lead his side in the 2022 event in Australia. It was the 29th match of the tournament between England and Sri Lanka at Sharjah. Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bowl first.

England had a poor start and lost their first three wickets for just 35 runs in 5.2 overs. But after that, Buttler, along with skipper Eoin Morgan (40), helped England to reach a competitive total of 163/4. Buttler also scored his century in that process and scored an unbeaten 101* off 67 balls with 6 fours and 6 sixes. In reply, Sri Lanka got all out for 137 runs and England won it by 26 runs. Buttler was adjudged "Man of the Match" for his brilliant century.
