Who was the first player to score a Test century?

Charles Bannerman was the first player to score a Test century. On the first official Australian tour of England in 1878, Bannerman topped the averages and scored the first century by an Australian in England, but no matches recognised as Tests were played on this tour. He had a career first-class batting record of 1,687 runs at 21.62.

Bannerman had the honor of scoring the first century ever recorded in Test cricket. His score of 133 at Leicester was the first century by an Australian in England. Due to illness, he did not make any other travel. He later coached in Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand and also served as a skilled umpire.
