in cricket history during IPL game
Fastest T20 Century
Explosive opener Chris Gayle slammed the fastest century in cricket history, reaching the triple figure in just 30 balls during the Royal Challengers Bangalore-Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League 2013.
The century that included seven dot balls, four singles, eight fours and 11 sixes for the home side at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.
The 30-ball ton beats the previous 34-ball Twenty20 record set by Australia’s Andrew Symonds. The record in 50-over cricket is Shahid Afridi’s 37-ball ton for Pakistan against Sri Lanka in 1996. The Test record belongs to Gayle’s fellow West Indian viv Richards, who flayed England for a 56-ball 100 in Antigua in 1986.
