England’s Will Jacks smashed a 25-ball hundred as Surrey beat Lancashire during a pre-season T10 match in Dubai on Thursday. The 20-year-old cricketer hit 11 sixes and 8 fours before being dismissed after scoring 105 from 30 balls.

The former under-19 cricketer also smashed 6 sixes in an over bowled by Stephen Parry as Surrey brought up their hundred in the fifth over. Thanks to Jacks’ innings, Surrey scored 176 from 10 overs and sealed a 95-run win.

While he continued going hammer and tongs, Jacks later admitted that he thought about a hundred only after reaching 98 off 22 balls.

“People were just chatting that 120-130 was an average score so I just wanted to try and have fun, that was it,” Jacks told Surrey’s official Twitter handle.

“I didn’t even think about the 100 until I was on 98,” Jacks added.

Jacks was recently a part of the England Lions’ squad which played against Board President XI.
