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.

Double Double is similar to a 50 in Test.

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...

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.

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.
