Rishabh Pant, blasted an unbeaten 116 off just 38 deliveries against Himachal in a North Zone T20 League (Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy) fixture leading his team to a crushing 10-wicket victory on Sunday.
Chasing a target of 144 set by Himachal, Pant got to the triple-figure mark in just 32 deliveries – the second fastest in T20 history – and along with Gautam Gambhir (30 not out off 33 deliveries), chased down the target in just 11.4 overs.
Chris Gayle still holds the record for the fastest century in the format when he clubbed 100 off just 30 deliveries against Pune Warriors in an Indian Premier League match back in 2013.
Pant made 104 of his runs in boundaries with 12 sixes and eight fours. After a middling Ranji Trophy season, he has found some T20 form leading into the IPL with scores of 38, 9 and 51 in his most recent matches
