When Brian Charles Lara reached triple figures in the first innings of the first Test against Pakistan at Bridgetown on Friday, 27th May 2005, he became the first West Indian and only the sixth batsman in Test history to score a century against all Test-playing nations.

Following are details of the stalwarts who are part of this Elite Club:
