‘Bunny’ is a word used in cricket to define a batter, bowler, or sometimes even a team as a whole when a certain player completely owns them with the performances.

Here in this article, we will see the batters and their favorite opponent teams (or their bunnies) against whom they scored the most number of ODI centuries. These batters have been a big threat to particular opponents who have made greater impacts on the sides’ head-to-head stats single-handedly. For example, the Indian batters Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma’s records against Sri Lanka have always been a defining factor in India vs Sri Lanka’s ODI head-to-head stats.

So, let’s get into the batting chart, which depicts the batters who have scored more than five ODI centuries against a single opponent.

Key Stats

Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar are the constant names you can find at the top of this table. Virat, one of the modern-day greats, has a firm stand as a batting performer against Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Australia. You can look at Virat’s opponent-wise ODI batting stats here to understand how he has dominated multiple teams in the formats.

On the other hand, Sachin has longevity like no other in the sport and has dominated every full-member side for a very long time. Even Virat will need much more effort and time to equal Sachin’s opponent-wise in the format.

The other names that found places more than once in the above table are Rohit Sharma (against Sri Lanka and Australia) and Ricky Ponting (against India and New Zealand). Especially, Rohit has been insane in performing against the Aussies.

One of the notable performers in the list is Quinton de Kock, who has been promising against the Indian side, taking only 19 games to score 6 ODI hundreds against the Asian side.
