Want to be a professional cricketer?
T20 cricket has really grown up in a very fast way. Though this shorter format is known as a batsman’s game, we have also seen the domination of the bowlers in this format. While we have already seen many centuries in this shorter format, it is still not an easy achievement due to having a very short time.
So, it is very hard to experience the twin century in the single T20 innings. However, we have already experienced four T20 innings where two batsmen scored centuries.
Here we are talking about those four T20 innings where two batsmen from the same team scored centuries.
Gloucestershire against Middlesex at Uxbridge on 26th July 2011
It was the match during the Friends Life t20 2011 when we first time experienced two centuries in the same T20 innings. After losing the toss, the first batting side Gloucestershire’s openers Kevin O’Brien and Hamish Marshall provided a dream start with the 192 runs partnerships and both scored centuries.
While Kevin scored 119 runs off 52 balls (7 fours and 11 sixes), Marshall scored 102 runs off 54 balls (11 fours and four sixes).
After Gloucestershire scored 254/3 (20 overs) in the first innings, they restricted their opponents to just 149/8 (20 overs).
