Record List : Fastest century in One day International cricket

Tag Cricket Records

Corey Anderson broke Shahid Afridi's record of fastest one day century. Back at Rajkot on 14 Nov 2008, Yuvraj Singh scored a 64 ball century against England.. That was then the second fastest 100 by an Indian behind 62 ball thriller by Mohammad Azharuddin against New Zealand at Baroda in 17 December 1988 but since then, Virat Kohli has twice broken the record which was later owned by Virender Sehwag with his 60 ball knock.

Yuvraj was injured that day, and hence, had Gautam Gambhir as runner (trick?). Otherwise, I'm sure this Punjab Left hander could have scored the first double century in one day Internationals as well.

Questions poured in at Itsonlycricket answers, asking for lists of exceptionally quick 100s ever made in one day international cricket.. I've done one better, and included the list fastest century ever made by all test playing nations, cause I firmly believe this record is also going to change frequently due to the kind of bats batsmen use these days and the evolution of Twenty20 games.

For over 17 years (6298 days to be precise), Shahid Afridi of Pakistan held the record of fastest century in ODI cricket, thrashing Sri Lankans at Nairobi and reaching the milestone off just 37 balls but Corey Anderson of New Zealand made a thrilling start to year 2014, bettering the near impossible record by one ball. Anderson crossed half way mark, first fifty runs, off 20 balls which in itself was nearly a record but his next fifty came off just 16 balls with six more sixes. The Kiwi left hander stayed unbeaten on 131 off only 47 balls with 14 big ones.

Fact : This was Afridi's first international knock, in his second ODI (he didn't bat on debut). Rumor : They say he was using the bat borrowed from Waqar Younis!
