Auckland, New Zealand batsman Sophie Devine on Thursday set the record for the fastest century in women’s T20 cricket. He achieved this by playing in the New Zealand Super Smash tournament from Wellington Blaze.
The New Zealand captain scored a century from 38 balls which included nine sixes and nine fours. With the help of this century, Wellington’s team achieved the target of 129 runs set by Otago Sparkas in 8.4 overs.
Sophie said after the match with Spark Sports, I was very nervous this morning. When you have a long break, you are a little nervous whether you can come back or not. So it was good to spend some time on the field.
Sophie’s century is also the fastest century in the men and women category in New Zealand. He broke Tim Seifert’s record of 40-ball century. Seifert scored this century against Auckland while playing for Northern District at Mount Maunganui in 2017.
