Reaching hundred with a six

Rajneesh Gupta | December 09, 2007 19:52 IST

Irfan Pathan [Images] reached his maiden Test hundred on Sunday in style - hitting Danish Kaneria for a six to move from 96 to 102. He, in the course, became only the seventh Indian to reach the three-figure mark with a six. Tendulkar has performed this feat as many as four times!

The following table lists Indian batsmen reaching the three figure mark with a six. Pathan follows into the foot-steps of Kapil Dev [Images], who also performed this feat while scoring his maiden Test hundred. Sehwag also reached his triple hundred with a six.
