Known as "The Master",he is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He is the leading run-scorer and century-maker in first-class cricket,with 61,237 runs and 197 centuries. A right-handed batsman and an occasional right-arm medium pace bowler,Hobbs also excelled as a fielder,particularly in the position of cover point.

In cricket,a century is a score of 100 or more runs in a single innings by a batsman. The term is also included in "century partnership" which occurs when two batsmen add 100 runs to the team total when they are batting together. A century is regarded as a landmark score for batsmen and a player's number of centuries is generally recorded in their career statistics. Scoring a century is loosely equivalent in merit to a bowler taking a five-wicket haul,and is commonly referred to as a ton or hundred. Scores of more than 200 runs are still statistically counted as a century,although these scores are referred to as double,triple,and quadruple centuries,and so on. Reaching 50 runs in an innings is known as a half-century.
