Centuries scored is often the standard in determining the worth of a batsman. Wonder where you guys would rate this accomplishment in relation to individual achievements in other sports. Here's some possibilities:

Soccer/football: hat-trick
Hockey: Hat-trick
Baseball: Grand slam. I actually think grand slams come down to luck and not a good measure. Maybe more like having a 5-RBI game.
Basketball: Double-Double
American Football: Rushing or passing 400-yards. Or scoring 3 touchdowns
Rugby: no idea, don't follow.

Hat-tricks in soccer is relatively rare. I think out of all of these, a double-double in basketball is probably the closest, given how likely it's to occur in a game and what kind of an impact it has for the team.

hatrick in soccer or any goal sport is like a triple century in cricket. its super rare.
double-double in basketball is like a hundred. or scoring 40+ points, getting 15+ rebounds. i dont know what the baseball equivalent would be. probably a home run of any kind.

40+ is probably the closest in terms of effect on game. Also, same objective - putting as many points on the board.

3 RBIs are way too common in baseball. You can also get it in 1 hit under right circumstances. 5-RBI game is probably is more appropriate, but luck and quality of teammates can also play a huge factor.

A century in cricket is equivalent to ONE goal in football. Not more, not less. BTW what the hell is soccer?

Soccer is that game where you kick a ball with your foot. Frankly can't think of another word that better describes it.

and no way. The rate at which goals are scored in a soccer game is way higher than the rate at which centuries are scored. Maybe a brace is more equivalent.

it's hard, but a century is harder. I've also seen plenty of fluke goals. Cant do that with a century.

not really, i would put three goals equal to century. it is as hard as making century. cause in football there are plenty of goals come with flukes where century has to be taken with lots of concentration and accuracy of facing many balls where one chance in football you can score a goal, be it pique or ramos.

I agree with all the people who mentions one goal being equivalent close to a century. Anyone mentioning 2 or 3 goals probably watches parar football.

The comparison is not fair because cricket century is very individual whereas a goal is 90% of the time team driven.

Some of Messi's goal where he single handedly takes the ball from midfield to the back of the post is more than a century in my opinion.

This is a double century in ODI.. atleast 150 (in t20).. quadruple century in test

A five RBI game might be equivalent to a 250.

A grand slam equivalent to 300.

There are actual probabilities being done sometime ago on this.

The numbers are there, we just need to do the calculations.

A grand slam is one of those things that sound really impressive, but actually isnt. After all, is a grand slam any different than a normal home run? The only difference is that the stars aligned for you and you got bases loaded. Requires a lot of luck and/or competent teammates.

I don't think double double is like a ton. Some guys are double double specialists. There is no such thing as a century specialist in cricket.

Also a double double by definition means excelling in two skill sets. Batting is only one half of cricket.

I think a 40+ game would be like a century. It's pretty rare,but the great scorers get a lot of them per season just like the great bastmen will score multiple centuries per calendar year. 30+ is too common these days, and a 50+ game is a bit too rare. It happens, but too few times.

I think each goal is a 50 equivalent

Ronaldo has like 40+ hattricks, got can't be saying he's got that many 200s

^^not all goals are equal . A penalty shot goal is not a century ..it's 1 . Even I can make them against good goal keepers 6 out of 10 x how many of his stellar goals are penalty driven ?

It's like a field goal after a touch down ....it's frowned upon if u miss
.u are expected to make it ...

Creating goal of its own vs one from assist has a big difference. .
So it's not comparable even one goal to another forget about against a different sport.

Dumb topic but dumb sometimes is fun

I think a triple double would be more like an all-rounder getting a century AND getting a five-wicket haul.

There are some similarities between test batting and golf so PGA win makes sense.

1 goal in soccer/football is equivalent to a half-century in cricket. So, 2 goals would make a 100. Same goes with any team sport (ice hockey, field hockey) that has goal system.

In a best of 4 out of 7 games Table Tennis match, winning 4-0 is perhaps comparable to a 100. Just may be...

I think a triple double would be more like an all-rounder getting a century AND getting a five-wicket haul. Century is a big deal. How many centuries can a player have in a specific format? Too me, each format is different game. We have 7 batsmen who has scored more than one centuries in test. 13 with 1 century. So total is 20 of 87 played. 5 more names with a century if you consider all formats. That makes 25 of 95+. If you don't like Triple double (I see why) we can change it to a 45+ point game. Of Course Wilt, Michael and Tendu are exceptions.

There are some similarities between test batting and golf so PGA win makes sense.I am guessing, pure guess, 70% of PGA players never win a tournament.

No doubt century is hard. But a triple-double is wayyyyy more difficult. The probability of a triple-double in a game is significantly lower than seeing a century, which is fairly common these days. And you have to be good at 3 areas, unlike a century, where you're focused on batting. The impact a triple double player has on his team is only equivalent to an all-rounder of the Shakib/Stokes/Kallis caliber.

No idea about golf tbh. But I was just going by the fact that both requires a good hand-eye coordination, temperament and mental strength.
