Recently, Ricky Ponting of Australia completed as many as 100 test match wins, the only cricketer to reach the triple figures. Interestingly, Aussies galore in this prestigious list followed by Mark Boucher and Jacques Kallis of South Africa, Vivian Richards of West Indies and Sachin Tendulkar of India. The reason is simple ~ Aussies and Windies dominated World cricket for a long while whereas South Africans have always been a fighting team. Have a look at win percentage of Adam Gilchrist, staggering 6.63. Few Indians and Sri Lankans are also present as they've played for a long period. here's the list..
