Century is one of the most asked parameters to judge the qualities of batsmen. We have seen many greats of the game struggling to get a hundred and sometimes things get worse for them when expectations from them go on increasing. So, in this article, we will see players who broke their century droughts.
#1 Virat Kohli
Former Indian captain, Virat Kohli was once known as a run machine because of his ability to score big hundreds and tons of runs but he struggled a lot in these past few years when he was lacking in the form and that is why he ended his century drought after 1021 days when he made his first and his 71st international century against Afghanistan in 2022 and it requires him 1115 days to end his ODI century drought when he made a ton against Bangladesh in 2022.
#2 Rohit Sharma
Indian all-format captain, Rohit Sharma is a white ball specialist. He was the highest run-getter in the 2019 World Cup with 5 hundred in the tournament. Rohit made his 29th ODI hundred in January 2020 and it took him 1100 days to make his 30th ODI international century against New Zealand in January 2023.
