In 1903, Tip Foster of England scored the first century of his career against Australia in Sydney for 26 runs.
At the top of the list is West Indies legend Gary Sobers. Sobers tripped his first career century against Pakistan in Kingston in 1958 and scored an unbeaten 365 runs. In the last 25 years, India’s Karun Nair and Crowley have tripled and double the first century of their careers respectively. Nair scored an unbeaten 303 against England in Chennai in 2016.
Crowley became the fifth batsman in the world and the third in the country to score a double-century in Tests at an early age. He tasted a double-century in 22 years and 200 days.
