Rohit Sharma broke the record for the most 100s in the 2023 World Cup after a powerful knock against Afghanistan during a group game. The Hitman scored his 7th century and got past Sachin Tendulkar's near-unbreakable record of 6 World Cup hundreds.

Australia's David Warner is second on the list just behind Rohit. The Left-handed opener tied Sachin Tendulkar's record of 6 centuries in match no 24 of the 2023 World Cup against the Netherlands. He has already scored two centuries in the 2023 edition and that too in consecutive matches. Warner takes the second spot as he has played the least number of matches than the Master Blaster.

Sachin Tendulkar in the third spot while Sri Lanka batting legend Kumar Sangakkara is fourth on the list with 5 hundreds. Australia sensation Ponting is fifth on the list with the same number of hundreds as Sangakkara but he has played more matches than the Sri Lankan wicket-keeper batter.
