Top 6 Batsman with Most Hundreds in Consecutive ODIs: Scoring a hundred in any format is always special for a batsman and the match remains in the memories of the fans and that cricketer. Scoring two in two is even special and then comes some players who achieved a unique and one of the most rarest record in One Day form of the game that only a handful of the cricketers have been able to achieve even after nearly 44 years of ODI cricket.

Ross Taylor was in sublime form during India’s visit to his Home New Zealand. He thrashed all of the Indian bowlers around the park and scored at will. He stamped his dream run in ODIs with scores like 55, 57, 17 and then scored back-to-back hundreds 112* and 102. He played his next ODI after 11 months of that series but that didn’t stop him from scoring runs. He registered another 100 against Pakistan in the first ODI and made it 3 Centuries in 3 Consecutive Innings to become only the 6th batsman in history to repeat this feat.
