Scoring a century in the first match of the career is one thing and scoring the same in the last match of the cricket career is another thing. Scoring heavy runs in the last ODI before retirement is so very prestigious for a cricketer. Don’t you agree? As much as the overall career performances of a cricketer help in boosting the scoreboard of the fantasy cricket games, the last century helps the cricketers to stay in the memory of their fans.
