SENA countries such as South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia are known for their testing pitch and weather conditions. In South Africa and New Zealand, the fast and bouncy wickets favour seamers to a great extent as they try their maximum best to exploit batters’ frailties.
On the other hand, when it comes to England, the pitches are green tops, which pave the way for the swinging and seaming conditions. As a result, batting on these pitches is indeed tough. Meanwhile, Australia’s pitches are well-known for their pace and bounce, making it tough for the batsmen to get used to the surface.
As a result, scoring a century in SENA countries is challenging for any cricketer. In this listicle, we will now learn about the names of four Indians who scored ODI centuries in all SENA countries.
