as far as my information is concerned Manoj Prabhakar has no Century in test cricket format. His highest score in test cricket is 95 against Newzlend in overseas.

Off Course Manoj Prabhkar has great batting talent. On many occasions he played quite accurately to Waqar Younis, Richard Headlee & other great bowlers.
