5 Popular Indian Batter To Score A Century In Asia Cup

Asia Cup 2022 is almost upon us and Team India will be starting their campaign against the mighty fine Pakistan who however, was depleted of their star bowler, Shaheen Afridi through an injury. As far as the status quo stands, barring India and Pakistan, the remaining teams are almost on a similar plane and will be gifting a string of thrilling encounters to make it to the semis.

India and Pakistan, however, have proved themselves to be iconic cricket forces across the world and they are currently in almost unstoppable shape with very minimal resistance from the other continental competitors. India was also depleted of Jasprit Bumrah after the latter suffered an injury in the England series. Now with two prime bowlers out of the equation it will be a showdown of the batters as the continental fray heats up.

With all said and done, here are popular Indian batters who scored a century in Asia Cup:


Sachin Tendulkar:

Sachin is one name that holds countless cricketing records and how can you separate him from the cardinal term called ‘Century’.

The Little Master has managed to smash two tons in the continental fray and they were absolute indicators of the bedazzling brilliance that we have known him for over the ages.

Virat Kohli:

The run-machine has found it hard to get his motor going for the last three years but before the slump came, he was a synonym of unparalleled brilliance. The kind of impact that he has had over India’s cricketing fabric has been nothing short of ecstatic. He has notched up the highest number of centuries for Team India in Asia Cup with 3 tons.



Shikhar Dhawan:

The southpaw has been in fine form over the years in ICC events and his current stance against West Indies and Zimbabwe will make him a favourite for the following year’s World Cup given the fact that he only plays T20 in IPL.

With all said and done, he has managed to smash two centuries in the continental extravaganza that places him in the same pedestal like that of Sachin Tendulkar in terms of centuries in the Asia Cup.

Rahul Dravid:

The Wall had one century in Asia Cup and it came against UAE in 2004 where India played an impeccable one-sided contest underlining their dominion in the tournament.


Jammy has forged an enviable legacy across the face of the planet with his tactical genius and before T20 swept over the world, he ruled both the formats of the game.

Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma

In terms of popularity, these four blew the roofs every time they were called for but when it comes to centuries in Asia Cup, they could only manage to bag just a solitary ton.

Navjot Sigh Sidhu had a century in Asia Cup too but in the popularity index, somehow it slumped down the ladder over the years.
