4. Ross Taylor
This is the only birthday century that has been hit in an ICC World Cup match. The mighty New Zealand batsman, Ross Taylor started assaulting Pakistan bowling in the death overs as he along with Jacob Oram scored over 100 runs in the last 5 overs.
Taylor enjoyed his 27th birthday when he scored unbeaten 131 off 124 balls in Pallekele during the 2011 ICC World Cup. The Kiwi superstar struck eight boundaries and seven massive over-boundaries to post 302 runs in their full quota of 50 overs.
Pakistan succumbed to pressure to get all out for 192 runs; thus losing the match by a massive margin. Ross Taylor’s brutal hitting earned him the man of the match award.
