Bangalore: Gary Kirsten of South Africa by scoring 150 against Bangladesh in the 1st Test at East London in 2002 became only the first player in Test history to perform the feat of scoring centuries against all Test playing countries.

Only two others have recorded centuries against eight Test playing countries and they are Steve Waugh of Australia and Sachin Tendulkar of India. While Tendulkar has played against Bangladesh and did not score a century, Australia is yet to play a Test against Bangladesh.

The following are the FIRST hundreds scored by Gary Kirsten against each of the Test playing nations. It is interesting to note that Kirsten has opened his account with 150 plus runs against six of the nine opponents he has played.
