Corey Anderson greeted the New Year with the fastest century in any form of international cricket. The New Zealand batsman reached his hundred in only 36 deliveries against West Indies in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Queenstown.

 

The previous world record for the fastest ODI century belonged to Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi, who scored his hundred in 37 deliveries in 1996 against Sri Lanka.

 

Anderson’s mind-blowing batting helped New Zealand amass a massive 283 for four in only 21 overs in a rain-curtailed match. He smashed 14 sixes in his innings of 131 not out in only 47 deliveries. He fell two short of the most sixes hit in an ODI innings. Rohit Sharma scored 16 sixes in an innings of 209 against Australia in an ODI at Bangalore on November 2, 2013.

 

New Zealand also created a world record of hitting 22 sixes in one ODI. The previous world record belonged to India, when they struck 19 sixes in that same match against Australia.

 

West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo had won the toss and elected to send New Zealand into bat on January 1, 2014 in the third ODI. He certainly could not have expected what was to follow.

 

Martin Guptill fell soon for one off seven balls as he edged one to Denesh Ramdin off Jason Holder’s bowling. Jesse Ryder and Brendon McCullum added 51 runs for the second wicket.

 

New Zealand captain McCullum struck 33 in only 11 balls with three fours and three sixes. He was dismissed by Sunil Narine. Ross Taylor soon followed for nine off eight balls.

 

In walked Anderson at No 5 and along with Ryder added a massive 191-run partnership for the fourth wicket. The duo scored at a run-rate of 15.28 in the 12.3 overs they were together.

 

Ryder scored his third ODI century in only 46 deliveries. But by then Anderson had already scored his first ODI century. Ryder the n fell for 104 giving Holder his second wicket.

 

But Anderson continued and ensured New Zealand finished at 283 for four. He was unbeaten on 131 off 47 balls. Along with the 14 sixes, he struck six fours. New Zealand’s overall run-rate was 13.47.

 

Such was the carnage that the most economical bowling figures belonged to Nikita Miller, who had an economy-rate of 11.00 in his four overs. The most expensive bowler was Ravi Rampaul as he gave away 64 runs in only three overs. His economy-rate was 21.33.

 

West Indies had won the first ODI, before the second was washed out due to rain.

 

Brief scores:

 

New Zealand 283 for 4 in 21 overs (Jesse Ryder 104; Corey Anderson 131*; Jason Holder 2 for 48) vs West Indies.
