Captaincy can be a burden for many players while some seem to enjoy it and most of the fantastic batsmen have always taken their batting to the next level while captaining the side. A century for a player is very valuable in any format of the game and being the captain, sets the tone for other players as well.

Not many players have been able to score centuries on a consistent basis and Sachin Tendulkar still remains the only player to have scored 100 international centuries. Here are 6 players with the most centuries as captain across formats.

Brian Lara is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers of all time and he had a fantastic international career for the West Indies. The left-hander was unorthodox and was one of the most elegant players as well. He is the only batsman to have scored a 400 in a single innings in tests and the record is yet to be broken.

Lara captained the West Indies side for a considerable period of time and he scored 8410 runs in the 172 matches he captained across formats. His tally of 19 centuries is the joint sixth most by any captain across formats.
