Corey Anderson scored a 36-ball century to break the world record for the fastest century in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) on New Year’s Day 2014 at Queenstown as New Zealand beat West Indies by 159 runs.

 

New Zealand had amassed a massive 283 for four in 21 overs in a rain-curtailed match. West Indies could only manage 124 for five in 21 overs.

 

Anderson broke a 17-year-long record that was held by Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi, who scored his century in 37 deliveries against Sri Lanka in 1996 at Nairobi.

 

The New Zealand batsman struck 14 sixes and six fours in his innings of 131 not out from 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.

 

Jesse Ryder had scored 104 in only 51 deliveries with 12 fours and five sixes. Ryder and Anderson shared 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. 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.

 

In reply, West Indies could only manage 124 for five. They got off to a poor start as Johnson Charles was dismissed on the second ball of the innings for a duck by Kyle Mills.

 

Then Lendl Simmons was dismissed for 13 by Mitchell McClenaghan. Kieran Powell soon followed for one as he also fell to McClenaghan.

 

Chadwick Walton scored 17 before getting dismissed by Ryder. West Indies were at 56 for four. Then captain Dwayne Bravo (56 not out) and Narsingh Deonarine (29) stitched a 56-run partnership for the fifth wicket.

 

But it was only a delaying the inevitable as New Zealand won the match by 159 runs. There was no surprises in who was Man of the Match as Anderson won the award.

 

West Indies had won the first ODI by two wickets, before the second was washed out due to rain. The five-match ODI series is tied at 1-1. The fourth ODI is at Nelson on January 4. The fifth and final ODI will be held at Hamilton on January 8.

 

Brief scores:

 

New Zealand 283 for 4 in 21 overs (Jesse Ryder 104; Corey Anderson 131*; Jason Holder 2 for 48) beat West Indies 124 for 5 in 21 overs (Dwayne Bravo 56*, Narsingh Deonarine 29; Mitchell McClenaghan 2 for 7) by 159 runs.

 

Man of the Match: Corey Anderson
