After taking a look at the players with the most BBL catches in history yesterday, we continue our stats week with some of the best numbers the BBL has ever seen.
Today we look at the players that single-handedly excited fans with the bat and with the ball, as the figures below are responsible for some of the best innings' in BBL folklore.
14 men have hit the elusive triple-figure mark in a BBL match, with Craig Simmons (Perth Scorchers), Usman Khawaja (Sydney Thunder) and Luke Wright (Melbourne Stars) the three players to have achieved the impressive milestone twice.
