James Faulkner has scored his first One-Day International (ODI) century in the seventh game between India and Australia at Bangalore. Australia are 298 for eight in 39 overs.
Faulkner got to his fifty off 35 balls and then smashed his next 50 in 22 balls. He got to his ton with a single off the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja. Since he got his ton in 57 balls, it is the fastest ton by an Australian in one-day cricket, beating Matthew Hayden‘s hundred off 66 balls.
