Captain’s hundred in a losing cause

Zimbabwe
captain - BRM Taylor scored a hundred - 107 not out against New Zealand in the
second One-day game at Harare on 22.10.11 - only to see that it did not fetch a
win for his team. His hundred provides the 44th hundred in One-day
games of a captain's hundred in a losing cause.

 

BRM Taylor has witnessed three
hundreds in vain as a captain in One-day games. He is the second captain after
CH Gayle of West Indies to witness three
hundreds in a losing cause. Thus BRM Taylor and CH Gayle share this dubious
distinction of most hundreds by captains going in vain in One day games.

 

The
following is the list of captains who have witnessed hundreds in a losing cause
on two or more occasions:
