Test cricket is the most unique format of cricket. Other than ODI and T20I, tests comprise an unlimited number of overs for batsmen and bowlers, which makes it a totally different style of cricket competition to observe. Smashing centuries and double centuries in Tests are considered big achievements for batsmen because it takes a lot of patience and focuses to reach a three-digit individual score in Test matches.
Only 12 countries currently have the Test status by International Cricket Council (ICC). They are India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Zimbabwe, West Indies, Ireland, and England.
Many batsmen have smashed multiple hundreds in Test cricket in the past but there are only 12 batsmen who have smacked tons against 9 different countries. Here we talk about players to score centuries against 9 different Test-playing nations.
