Cricket: Corey hits fastest century in ODI

Queenstown, Jan 1 : New Zealand batsman Corey Anderson started the new year with a bang by hitting the fastest century in One Day International (ODI) cricket against West Indies here on Wednesday.

Breaking Pakistan's Shahid Afridi's record of 37-ball century in 1996, Anderson reached his century off 36 balls.

He remained unbeaten at 131 off 47 balls. Anderson smashed 16 sixes and six boundaries in his record-breaking knock.

New Zealand opener Jesse Ryder also smashed 104 off 51 balls that helped the home side post 283 for four on the scoreboard in 21 overs.

In a rain affected match, where teams will play 21 overs per side, West Indies will need to score 284 run in 21 overs to win the third ODI match of the series.
