The Lord’s Cricket Ground broadly alluded to as the Home of Cricket, is a noteworthy setting in the sport of cricket. The Victorian period structure alongside the long room and the popular gallery is scratched in the brains of all cricket fans. Arriving at the three-digit mark in this recorded ground is a fantasy for all the cricket players.

The cricketers played the first Test coordinate at Lords in 1884, with England and Australia. Numerous extraordinary players have scored hundreds of years here in Test matches.

Extraordinary batsmen without a solitary Test century at Lord’s

Jacques Kallis

As a right-gave batsman and right-arm quick medium swing bowler, fans see Kallis as one of the best all-rounders ever. In the Test profession crossing for a long time, he has played in 166 matches hoarding 13289 runs at a normal of 55.37. He has scored hundreds of years in Old Trafford, and Kensington Oval against England, but has neglected to score one in Lords. Kallis has an aggregate of 54 runs with an ugly normal of 10.8. He, in any case, had taken 4 wickets in an innings at Lord’s against England in 1998.

Brian Lara

Brian Charles Lara, without a doubt, will be recognized as one of the best batsmen of the advanced time. With his extraordinary position, lightning footwork, and high backlift he was continually needing additional limits and runs. He has gathered 11953 runs at a normal of 52.89 from the 131 Test matches he had played. It included 34 centuries, 7 twofold hundreds, 1 triple century, and the main 1 fourfold century in Test cricket. Indeed, even with every one of these accomplishments added to his repertoire; he was never fruitful playing in the Mecca of cricket. In his 6 appearances at masters, he has a sum of 126 runs at a small normal of 22.66 contrasted with his profession normal of 52.89.

Ricky Ponting

Ricky Thomas Ponting, also known as “Punter”, ruled batting in all organizations around the globe. With a sum of 71 centuries (Test – 41 and ODI – 30), he is simply behind Sachin Tendulkar in the number of hundreds of years scored. He is the second-most elevated run-scorer in Test coordinate cricket. Ponting has made 13378 runs in just 168 matches at a normal of 51.85. Not only an extraordinary batsman, but he is also likewise considered as the best commander that has driven Australia.

Ponting was the commander of the Australian group that ruled World Cricket during the 2000s. Out of the 41 centuries in Test, 23 was scored in Australia and the rest in scenes around the globe.

Ponting has an aggregate of 135 runs at a less than impressive normal of 16.87. Ponting, be that as it may, had scored a Century at Lords against England in 2005.

Sunil Gavaskar

The best opening batsmen ever! His perfect skill, focus, and the mental fortitude to confront the fearsome West Indian movement assault without a head protector make him the Little ace of cricket. The little ace’s most elevated Test-thump came against West Indies in Chennai, when he scored an unbeaten 236. Although Sachin Tendulkar outperformed his record of 34 Test hundreds of years, his commitment to Indian cricket is a long way past these numbers. In 4 Test matches, he scored 774 runs.

Probably the greatest void in his profession can be the nonappearance of a Test century in Lords out of his 34 centuries. He played 5 Test matches and neglected to score a hundred in the 10 innings he played. He scored a sum of 376 runs from his 10 innings at a normal of 37.6. It included 2 half-hundreds of years. Notwithstanding, he figured out how to score 188 for the Rest of the World XI against Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) at Lord’s in his last top-notch game.

Sachin Tendulkar

The divine force of cricket who has nearly accomplished everything in his profession with the bat has neglected to score a century in Lords in test cricket, even 50 years. 100 worldwide hundreds of years, 51 in Tests, not one of them at Lord’s. Sachin has scored hundreds of years on different grounds in England; for example, Old Trafford, Edgbaston, Trent Bridge, and Leeds with scores of 119*, 122, 177, and 193 separately. He has scored 7 Test hundreds of years against England.

In the 9 innings, he has ventured out to bat in Lord’s his scores read an aggregate of 195 runs at a normal of 21.67. It is route underneath his norm. Like his venerated image, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin has figured out how to score a century in Lord’s playing for MCC.
