India's Rohit Sharma has the most centuries (four) in T20Is

A Twenty20 International (T20I) is an international cricket match between two teams, each having T20I status, as determined by the International Cricket Council.[1] In a T20I, the two teams play a single innings each, which is restricted to a maximum of 20 overs.[2] The format was originally introduced by the England and Wales Cricket Board for the county cricket competition with the first matches contested on 13 June 2003 between the English counties in the Twenty20 Cup.[3] The first T20I took place on 17 February 2005 when Australia defeated New Zealand by 44 runs at Eden Park in Auckland, with Australian captain Ricky Ponting finishing not out on 98.[4]

A century is a score of one hundred or more runs by a batsman in a single innings.[5] This is regarded as a notable achievement.[6] The first century in a T20I match was scored by Chris Gayle of the West Indies who made 117 against South Africa at the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007.[7][8] South Africa won the match, one of only seven occurrences which did not result in a victory to the team with the player scoring the century.[9] The most recent century, as of January 2019, was scored by Ravija Sandaruwan of Kuwait against Bahrain at the Al Emarat Cricket Stadium in January 2019.[10]

India's Rohit Sharma leading the list with four T20I centuries, then New Zealand's Colin Munro's three, followed by Munro's compatriots Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum, West Indians Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis, India's K. L. Rahul and Australia's Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch with two each.[11][11] Lewis' first century came during the 2016 series against India at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida.[12] In reply, India's Rahul finished on 110 not out, the only occasion where two T20I centuries were scored in the same match.[13] Rahul's innings was one of the eleven instances where a batsman scored a century in the second innings of a T20I match.[14] In July 2018, Finch posted 172 from 76 balls against Zimbabwe during the 2018 Zimbabwe Tri-Nation Series to break his own record for the highest score in a T20I match,[15][16] elipsing the 156 he set in August 2013.[17] Rohit Sharma and David Miller of South Africa share the record for the fastest century, both reaching the milestone from 35 deliveries.[18][19][20] Miller was also the first player to score a T20I century batting at number five or lower.[21][22]

As of January 2019, 37 centuries have been scored by 25 different players over 700 T20I matches.[23] Players from all teams except Ireland and Zimbabwe that are Full Members and of the teams that are Associate Members only Scotland, Hong Kong, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates have had a player reach triple figures.[24] New Zealand and India lead the list with seven centuries, followed by Australia, five.[25] Centuries have been scored at 31 different grounds, with Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka, leading the list with three.[26]
