Correct option is C)

The quoted phrase means 'To do something that will be remembered or that makes one famous'.
Option A is incorrect. It means 'became famous for something bad'. Thus, it does not have the required meaning.
Option B is incorrect. We do not know if or not he scored many centuries. Thus, it is not the answer.
Option C is correct. 'Distinguished himself' means 'To do something that will be remembered'. Thus, it has the required meaning.
Option D is incorrect. It does not have any connection with the sentence or the quoted phrase.
