Zia Rana January 1, 2014

Corey Anderson (New Zealand) tore apart the bowling attack of the West Indies and created a new world record in ODI cricket by plundering a ton on 36 balls.

The record was previously secured by Shahid Afridi of Pakistan who smashed his century on 37 deliveries on October 4, 1996, in Nairobi. He hit 11 huge sixes and 6 fours for his hundred whereas Anderson dispatched 12 sizzling sixes and 4 fours for his ton.

Below, we will highlight 10 fastest hundreds achieved by different batsmen in the One Day Internationals along with the results of the games. It is interesting to note that Shahid Afridi has taken his place thrice in the all time list of 10 attacking batsmen in the limited overs cricket.
