Best Answer

A first class century is any century scored outside of International or Test play. For example, if a player playing for Middlesex scored a century against Somerset in the English County Championship that century would be recorded as a first-class century. Centuries scored in limited-overs cricket are counted in a completely different category along with all limited-over statistics.

What is a century in cricket?

'First class' cricket is usually defined as a match in which both teams have the possibility of having two innings each. Although the term usually refers to domestic competition it does, by definition, include international test cricket. Therefore a 'first class century', is 100 runs scored by a single batsmen in a single innings of first class cricket.
