New Zealand captain Sophie Devine has created history by scoring the fastest century in women’s T20 cricket. Sophie scored a century off just 36 balls in the Super Smash competition.

Sophie Devine, playing for the Wellington team, hit nine boundaries and as many sixes during her unbeaten innings of 108 runs. With this innings, Wellington’s team achieved the target of 129 runs in just 8.4 overs.

Earlier this record was in the name of Deandra Dottin of West Indies. Dottin scored a century in 38 balls against South Africa in 2010.

The 31-year-old Divine was playing her first match of the Super Smash tournament this season. Devine also participated in the Women’s Big Bash in Australia.

Speaking of the fastest century in overall T20 cricket, this record is in the name of the Caribbean cricketer Chris Gayle. In the 2013 IPL, he scored a century in 30 balls.
