Over 400 T20I matches have been played so far, and it’s an honour to have the fastest T20 centuries. T20 cricket is widely regarded as the quickest form of the game. Due to the flatness of the wickets in most matches, a batter can readily target bowlers. A bowler cannot bowl you in the same area repeatedly. So the T20 format is best suited for batsmen who enjoy smashing bowlers around the park. Although the play is fast and furious among batsmen and bowlers, getting a century is difficult. There’s always a possibility of getting out while coming out to hit the quickest runs.
Yet, there have been batsmen who have batted terrifically. Some have given bowlers nightmares by scoring some of the fastest T20 centuries. The magical knocks have blown away the cricketing world and fans as well. The universe boss, Chris Gayle, is the first player to hit a ton in the format. However, he holds the record for the fastest century in T20 in the format that came in an IPL game.
