Oldest ODI centurions

Sanath Jayasuriya’s magnificent 152 off 99 balls was his 21st century in this form of cricket. At the age of 37 years and 1 day, he became only the eighth batsman to score a century after his 37th birthday. Geoffrey Boycott still remains the oldest ODI centurion when he smashed 105 against Australia at Sydney in December 1979 at the age of 39 years and 51 days. Interestingly, it was Jayasuriya’s fifth century in LOI’s after his 35th birthday. He thus equalled the world record of most hundreds by a batsman after turning 35. For reader’s interest the accompanying tables have the complete details.
