Longest time in terms of days to register a maiden IPL century after debut

The number of years taken by Mayank Agarwal, from his debut in 2011, to register his maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) century is the most time any batsman has taken in terms of days to do so. He achieved the personal landmark during his knock of 106 for Kings XI Punjab against Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah on September 27. Since making his IPL debut on April 9, 2011, it has taken Agarwal 3,459 days – nine years, five months and 18 days. However, the record in terms of innings is held by Virat Kohli, who scored his maiden IPL century in his 120th innings in April 2016. Agarwal appears at the No. 4 position in this list on that measure.
