Big centuries are laced with piercing boundaries and big hits over the fence, especially if playing in the limited overs format. They require runs to be scored at a rapid pace. However, not every time does a batsman prefer the risk of taking the aerial route to score runs when they are easily able to take those comfortable singles and doubles with regular fours. There are several highly talented batsmen (some known for their big hitting prowess) who have posted massive individual scores in ODIs without the help of sixes. Here are the top 10 centuries without hitting a six in ODIs.
10. Desmond Haynes – 145* v New Zealand:
The West Indies opener was a strong and ruthless batsman. He was a part of the world-beating Windies side which was on a conquering streak during the 70’s and the 80’s. On 14 April 1985, Haynes hit a famous ODI century, a superb unbeaten knock of 145 off 147 balls opening the innings against New Zealand. His innings included 16 fours but no sixes.
