Best Answer

'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.
