The 23-year old New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson hit the fastest century ever in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against the West Indies at Queenstown. His century came of a mere 36 balls, and included six fours and 14 sixes. The previous world record was held by the Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi who raced to his century of 37 balls against Sri Lanka in his debut game at Nairobi in 1996.
Anderson’s power-hitting took New Zealand to a monstrous score of 283 runs for the loss of four wickets in a rain reduced game of 21 overs. He also shared an entertaining partnership with the other century maker, Jesse Ryder.
