IPL Most Centuries: Scoring a century in the T20 format of the game has to be one of the toughest jobs in the game of cricket. With only 120 balls to play, the players need to come up with something really special to score a century in the shortest format of the game. And while scoring a T20 century is definitely tough, the modern-day batsmen have managed to do that on a regular basis.

Talking about IPL, the tournament has been fortunate enough to witness players scoring centuries on a regular basis. In 2008, the tournament began in a stunning manner when Brendon McCullum played a whirlwind knock of 158 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the very first-ever game of IPL. In the inaugural season, a total of 6 centuries were scored.
