Five Indian batsmen have hit at least 1 century in all 3 formats of cricket.

There are only a few Indian batters who have managed to score centuries in all three formats of the game. Former Indian batter Suresh Raina was the first Indian batter to get to this achievement when he hit a century on his test debut against Sri Lanka after having scored hundreds in ODIs and T20I cricket. Suresh Raina was also the first Indian batter to score a century in T20Is for Indian cricket team. His T20I century came against South Africa in the ICC T20 World Cup 2010.

Apart from Suresh Raina there a few other batters who have scored centuries in each format of the game. This achievement is very rare to find among the batters who have played the game. Scoring a century in T20I cricket is a tough job. Only a handful of Indian players have managed to get to this record, let’s have a look at the five Indian batters with at least one century in all three formats of cricket.
