New Zealand’s Corey Anderson smashes quickest ODI century

New Zealand’s cricket player Corey Anderson created a record by hitting the fastest century in One-Day International (ODI), reaching 100 in just 36 balls against the West Indies. Prior to Anderson, Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi had this record who took 37 deliveries to hit century against Sri Lanka in 1996.

In his unbeaten 131, Anderson hit 14 sixes, the third highest number of sixes in an ODI innings. India’s Rohit Sharma smashed 16 sixes against Australia two months ago and Australia’s Shane Watson hit 15 against Bangladesh in 2011.
