Virender Sehwag gets India's fastest ODI hundred

Sehwag smashed Kiwi bowlers in the 4th ODI between New Zealand and India and got his hundred off just 60 balls, the fastest by ay Indian in ODI cricket. He completed his hundred in a superb fashion hitting a six in the ball of Daniel Vettori and making his score 103 in the 19th over. This is the 11th ODI hundred for india. Sehwag remained not out on 125 off 74 balls hitting 6 sixes and 14 fours as India won the match by D/L method.

Just 1 ball before Sehwag completed his hundred, Gambhir made his 50 off 52 balls. At that stage India were 164/0. Sehwag's hundred is of course the fastest by any Indian but also the 7th fastest ODI hundred. Before this Mohammad Azharuddin had got his hundred in 62 balls.

  1. I think you miss out Yuvraj Singh who incidentally has the 3rd fastest ODI ton by an Indian batsman. 100 of 64 balls vs England at Rajkot in 2008. Here is the list:

    60 V Sehwag 125* NZ Hamilton 2009
    62 M Azharuddin 108* NZ Baroda 1988

    69 V Sehwag 100 NZ Colombo 2001

  2. Thanks! I corrected it. Anyway it was correct in the second list.


    India need to keep the foot down ahead of the Tests. No rotation.

  4. He is the terrific hitter, He will make few more fastest records. I am expecting a fastest 50 from him. I wish him good luck.

  5. virender is a great hitter he is a nice player.
