List of cricketers to play 100+ games in all three formats
Only three cricketers have played 100+ matches in all three formats of the game.
Modern-day cricket demands a lot of things from a player to survive longer at the international level. Fitness has become one of the biggest parameters of ability and talent. Playing 100 games in one format requires an extreme amount of hard work from a player. Longevity and consistency become key aspects in everyone’s career who is looking to represent their national side for a long time.
With T20I cricket also being added in the last 20 years, players have worked hard to keep their consistency and fitness at the highest level. Only three players so far across countries have managed to play more than 100 games across formats (tests, ODIs and T20Is). Not many have crossed the 100-game mark in tests and T20Is. T20I is the newest form of the game. Let’s have a look at the list of cricketers to play 100+ games in all three formats.
1. Ross Taylor (New Zealand):
Former New Zealand captain Ross Taylor was the first cricketer ever to play 100+ games in all three formats of the game. In his career from 2006 to 2022, Ross represented New Zealand in 112 tests, 236 ODIs and 102 T20Is. He scored 7683, 8607 and 1909 runs in tests, ODIs and T20Is, respectively.
2. Virat Kohli (India):
Star Indian batter Virat Kohli made his debut for India senior men’s team five months after winning the U19 World Cup 2008. Since his debut, he made himself an integral part of the Indian playing XI. In August 2022, Virat Kohli joined the elite list of players to have played 100-plus matches in all three formats of the game when he played his 100th T20I match. So far, Kohli played 113 tests, 292 ODIs, and 117 T20I matches for India. He has scored 26,733 international runs with 80 centuries in his career so far.
3. David Warner (Australia):
David Warner, who recently called his time on his test and ODI career, is the third cricketer to be on this elusive list of cricketers to play 100+ matches in all three formats of the game. David Warner represented Australia in 112 tests, 161 ODIs before retiring from the formats. On 9th February, 2024, during the first T20I between Australia and West Indies at Bellerive Oval, Hobart, David Warner played his 100th T20I game.
Interestingly, Warner hit a double century on his 100th test match, a century on his 100th ODI match and 70 on his 100th T20I match and won ‘Man of the Match’ award in all of these three games.
