Brendon McCullum and Chris Gayle are the only batsmen to score two T20 international centuries.

In the sport of cricket, a century is a score of hundred or more runs by a batsman in one innings.[1] A Twenty20 International (T20I) is an international match between two teams, each having T20I status, as determined by the International Cricket Council.[2] In a T20I, the two teams play a single innings each, which is restricted to a maximum of 20 overs.[3] 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.[4] 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.[5]

As of 25 March 2016, from a total of 549 matches,[6] only 18 cricketers from 12 nations have scored a total of 20 centuries.[7] New Zealander Brendon McCullum and West Indian Chris Gayle are the only players to have achieved the feat twice.[8][9] Of the 20 centuries, only five of them have not resulted in victories. Players from all the teams that have permanent T20I status – with the exception of Zimbabwe – have made centuries[lower-alpha 1] and of the teams that have temporary T20I status only Scotland, Afghanistan and Hong Kong have had a player reach triple figures.[lower-alpha 2] No players from teams that have previously held temporary T20I status have scored centuries, with Hiral Patel from Canada coming the closest with 88 not out against Ireland in 2010.[10][lower-alpha 3] The New Zealanders and the South Africans lead the list with three centuries each followed by Sri Lanka, India, the West Indies and Australia with two.

The first century was scored by Chris Gayle of the West Indies who scored 117 against South Africa at the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007.[11] Gayle's record stood for four and a half years until Richard Levi of South Africa also posted 117 but from fewer deliveries, playing in his second T20I match.[12] Seven months later, Brendon McCullum of New Zealand eclipsed the record by six runs.[8] In August 2013, Australia's Aaron Finch in his seventh T20I made 156 from 63 balls, passing McCullum's mark by 33 runs.[13] As of March 2016, Levi holds the record for the fastest century, achieving this score from 45 deliveries.[14]
