The former Pakistan skipper has scored 8 centuries during the current World Test Championship cycle. The 29-year-old isn’t in the greatest of form currently but on his day Babar Azam is a delight to watch. 

One of his most memorable knocks came against Australia in Karachi in 2022. Babar Azam scored 196 while chasing a huge total in the 4th inning of the game. Till he was batting the home side had a huge chance to cause a major upset.

New Zealand’s great batter Kane Williamson is class-personified with the bat in hand. During the current Test match versus South Africa, the former Kiwi skipper has scored two tons in the same game. 

Kane Williamson is now fourth on the list of top century makers during the current World Test Championship cycle. His best knock came against Sri Lanka last year where he led his side to a close win. 

Steve Smith – Australia – 9 Centuries

Australia’s latest Test opener is the greatest batter of this generation. Steve Smith has scored nine centuries in the World Test Championships. This has propelled the 34-year-told to 3rd for top century makers during the current World Test Championship cycle. 

The Australian will hope opener Steve Smith keeps his prime run-scoring form for the next few years. The Australians are set to host India in a five-match series at the end of the year. A battle against the Indian seamers will be one to relish for a long time. 

Marnus Labuschagne – Australia – 11 Centuries 

154

Ever since his debut, no batter has come close to matching Marnus Labuschagne in run scoring. The South African-born Australian number three batter is poetry in motion when in full flow with the bat.

Marnus Labuschagne has hit 11 centuries to place him at the number two spot in the table. The tall run scoring by Marnus Labuschagne has made him one of the top century makers in the World Test Championship cycle. 

Joe Root – England – 12 Centuries 

155

The best batter in the world right now is none other than former England skipper Joe Root. The 33-year-old has whizzed past many batting records during his tall run-scoring form for the Three Lions. 

Joe Root has scored 12 centuries from 89 innings during the World Test Championships. His best knock came against India in 2021 when he scored 228 in Chennai to help his side win the game. It is appropriate that Joe Root is number one among the top century makers in the World Test Championship cycle.
