The last decade has been fruitful for Indian cricket when it comes to red-ball cricket. While playing on Indian soil, they are yet to lose a series since the England tour of India in 2012. Talking about playing away from home, the Indians have managed to win Series in Australia twice and have won Test matches in England and South Africa as well. One of the main reasons for their success over the last few years has been the Batting department. A lot of youngsters along with some experienced batters like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, have managed to hammer down runs even against the top sides like England and Australia. 

We are into the third cycle of the World Test Championship and India have dominated the first two, reaching the finals on both occasions, but are yet to win the trophy. At OneCricket, we have found the most successful Indian batters in the World Test Championship on Indian turfs. 

So let's have a look at the top Indian batters with the most centuries in India in the World Test Championship cycle.

Ever since Rohit Sharma started opening the innings in the longest format, he has been providing the Indian team with great starts. With over 2200 runs in the World Test Championship just 29 Tests, Rohit is the highest scorer for India. With an amazing average of over 48, he has hammered seven centuries and six half-centuries so far. 

When it comes to playing in India during the WTC period, Rohit Sharma has hammered five centuries and he even converted one of them into a double hundred. With centuries against Australia, England and South Africa, Rohit has been the top-ranked Indian batter when it comes to centuries in India in WTC.

With almost 1300 runs in the World Test Championship, Mayank maintained an average of 39.18 and also smashed four half-centuries. 

Mayank Agarwal in his 21-match career has amassed 1488 runs including two double hundreds. With a couple of centuries against South Africa and the other two against Bangladesh and New Zealand, the right-hander has been among the top players during the WTC on the Indian turfs.

Virat Kohli popularly known as the run-machine due to the amount of runs under his belt in his career so far, has been the greatest batter of this generation. With 80 international centuries, he has been an immaculate force to the Indian team. When it comes to the red ball, the right-hander also holds the record for most double centuries by Indian batters. 

Despite going through a century drought in international cricket for over 1000 days, Virat has still managed to smash three tons during the World Test Championship in India, which lands him on the third position of this record. He is the second-highest scorer among the Indians in the World Test Championship with 2235 runs so far.

Shubman Gill, who is also known as the prince in the cricketing world has been one of the major contributors to Indian cricket since his debut. With over 1200 runs in his pocket along with the two centuries in the World Test Championship so far, he comes fourth on this list of Indian batters with the most centuries in India during WTC. 

His first century in India came against the Aussies in Ahmedabad and the second one came in the ongoing second Test against England in Visakhapatnam. Having lost Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma early in the second innings, Gill was under pressure due to the situation and his recent poor form. He turned the table by smashing a magnificent century, helping the Indian team post a total of 398 for England.
