List of Indians with highest number of first class hundreds…

100s Name
81 SM Gavaskar

72 KS Ranjitsinhji
68 RS Dravid
60 VS Hazare
55 DB Vengsarkar

That’s why today we play Ranji Trophy, Duleep Teophy & Vijay Hazare Trophy.


List A and First Class are two different forms of game. As far as I know, the limited over cricket falls under the category of List A whereas a 3 day or 4 day or 5 day game is called first class. Now Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy are definitely first-class. However, Vijay Hazare trophy falls under the category of List A.


Yes you are right. He was regarded as the greatest batsman in the history of cricket. Hobbs played for England and Surrey. Hobbs set the record for the highest number of runs and centuries in first class cricket.
