Abu Dhabi: Pakistan cricket team achieves the highest number of test hundreds in a calendar year. Pakistan batsmen scored 26 tons in between the period from October 2014 to October 2015.
In the last calendar year, Pakistan hits the top position with 26 tons scored by some different name in their batting line up. As much as 9 different batsmen are included in this list of centurions.
The names includes Younis Khan (6), Asad Shafiq (4), Azhar Ali (4), Misbah Ul Haq (3), Muhammad Hafeez (30), Ahmad Shahzad (2), Sarfraz Ahmad (2), Shan Masood (1) and Shoaib Malik (1).
In the list of countries, Australia and India are at number 2 and 3 with 14 centuries each. England is at number 4, New Zealand at number 5 and Srilanka is at number 6. Each of these countries has 10 hundreds scored in a calendar year.
Pakistan, however leads the marathon with a giant margin. It is interesting to note that Pakistan hit most of the tons in UAE. The batting paradises have surely helped them achieve a lot.
