Terms of cricket / Century

In the sport of cricket, a batsman reaches his century when he scores 100 or more runs in the innings. The term is also included in "century partnership" which occurs when two batsmen add 100 runs to the team total when they are batting together.

The first century in Test cricket was scored by Charles Bannerman. Playing in the first ever Test between Australia and England, (Melbourne Cricket Ground, March 15-19, 1877) Bannerman scored 165 retired hurt.
