Gloucestershire County Cricket Club (GCCC) are quite similar to the top-two entries on this list, in regards to the fact that none of the teams have won their respective tournaments. Despite that, they’ve had a select group of players who’ve dished out some consistent batting brilliance. Case in point being, Gloucestershire occupying the fourth spot on this list with 12 individual centuries.

Chronologically, GCCC are one of the earliest teams to have registered a century in the T20 format. Back in 2003, when the format- as we now know it- was still in its burgeoning days, Australia’s Ian Harvey arrived hot onto the English T20 scene and gave an impressive trailer of the power-packed cricket that was to follow with a 50-ball century against Warwickshire.

Aside from that iconic innings, and a runner-up finish in the 2007 season of the Blast, the Gloucs haven’t really tasted much success as a collective unit. But they’ve had some standout individual performances; none better than their former captain, Michael Klinger, who has crossed the three-figure-mark on seven occasions.

Klinger is also the most recent centurion on the team’s roster, courtesy of his swashbuckling 102* against the Kent Spitfires last season. Former New Zealand batsman Hamish Marshall is second on the centurions’ list with 2 hundreds to his name.
