Alongside this, he accumulated a staggering 2,541 runs in 42 innings, boasting an average of 68.67. And if that wasn’t enough, he added eight more half-centuries to his name.

2. Aravinda de Silva: The Preceding Record-Holder

Before Sachin’s monumental year, it was Aravinda de Silva who held the spotlight. Back in 1997, he crafted 10 centuries in 39 matches. With 2,432 runs in 46 innings, he maintained an impressive average of 62.35.

3. Virat Kohli: Back-to-Back Brilliance

The dynamic Virat Kohli isn’t one to be left behind. In 2018, he etched his name with 11 centuries in 37 matches.

He piled up 2,735 runs in 47 innings, averaging 68.37. But the story doesn’t end there. Rewind a year to 2017, and Kohli mirrored this feat with another 11 centuries.

4. Ricky Ponting: Leading with Elegance
