World Cup is a mega event that every player craves for due to its uniqueness of being held once every four years. Every cricketer dreams of representing his country in the World Cup once in a lifetime. Performing in a World Cup imparts recognition, respect, and fame. Many great batters have played in the World Cup and hit some magnificent hundred, but having your name on the list of most centuries in World Cup is honorable.

Swashbuckling Indian opener Rohit Sharma gets 2nd place on the list of making most centuries in the World Cup. Playing only 2 World Cups, Sharma has already registered 6 centuries which is joint most by any batter. The ace batter scored 5 hundreds in the 2019 World Cup, the highest by any player in a single edition of the World Cup.
Former Lankan wicket-keeper batter, Kumar Sangakkara gets 3rd spot in terms of slamming the most centuries in the World Cup. Being the 3rd highest run scorer in World Cup, the southpaw got 5 hundreds and accumulated 1532 runs at a dashing average of 56.74 in 37 matches.
