Rohit Sharma hits the fastest century in T20

Posted by

India skipper Rohit Sharma yet again entered the record books after completing his second T20I century against Sri Lanka yesterday
He became fastest centurion equalling South African batsman David Miller’s record. Both batsmen took 35 balls to reach their respective centuries. Weeks after scoring his third double hundred in ODIs, Rohit continued his dominance with the bat in the limited-overs format. Rohit hit a mind-boggling 11 fours and 8 sixes in the run-up to his century.
Apart from Rohit and David Miller, Richard Levi (45 balls), Faf du Plessis and KL Rahul (46 balls), Aaron Finch and Chris Gayle (47 balls) have hit the fast centuries.
Rohit, however, was dismissed for 118 runs off only 43 runs. He hit 12 fours and 10 sixes to reach his 118 at an astonishing batting strike-rate of 274.42. He was foxed by Sri Lanka’s Dushmantha Chameera’s slower delivery and was caught by Akila Dananjaya.
