A century has always had a special resonance, in all walks of life, and none more so than in cricket. Scoring one hundred runs is the ultimate for a batsman. As former England captain Andrew Strauss admits, it’s incredibly hard to do; for Ricky Ponting, it’s a transformational moment in the career of a cricketer. Or in the words of Geoffrey Boycott, ‘a century has its own magic’.
In The Art of Centuries, Steve James applies his award-winning forensic insight to the very heart of batting. Through interviews with the leading run-scorers in cricket history and his own experiences, Steve discovers what mental and physical efforts are required to reach those magical three figures. Despite his own haul of 47 first-class tons, he himself felt at times that he was poorly equipped for the task.
So working out how to score centuries is an art. And bowlers might not agree, but there really is no better feeling in cricket.
