3 players who have scored century while playing for two different countries in ODI

100 for 2 countries

Scoring a hundred for your national side is always a big milestone in a cricketer's career. But some players in the history of cricket have scored a hundred for both the national teams that they have represented. Here is the list of all 3 players who have scored a century for two countries in ODI cricket.

3. Mark Chapman

Mark Chapman, a top-order batsman for New Zealand, became the only third player to ever score a century for two different nations, establishing his name in cricket history. In the year following his 2014 international debut for the country of his origin, Hong Kong, Chapman scored an unbroken 63 against Oman. He later moved to New Zealand, where he is now a member of the Black Caps. He scored an unbeaten 101 0ff 75 balls to help New Zealand chase a target of 307 against Scotland.

2. Ed Joyce

The Irish batsman Joyce is best remembered for playing for two different nations in back-to-back World Cups. When the 2007 World Cup was played, Joyce was a member of the English team, making him the first Irishman to play for England in the modern era. He scored a century against the strong Australian team at the historic SCG test which almost cemented his spot in the England Cricket team. He was also one of the best batsmens for Ireland in his early days. He was another player in this list of scoring a hundred for 2 different countries.

1. Eoin Morgan

The England World Cup winning captain in 2019 was the other name in this list who has scored a hundred for 2 different countries. Morgan made it obvious that he intended to play for England even though he continued to play for Ireland until 2009. He was able to change nations with ease because his mother was English and he held a British passport. Morgan played in the productive World T20 campaign in 2009 after making his England debut against the West Indies. He has also scored a hundred for both the countries that he has represented.
