New Delhi. The stormy style of the captain of the two-time world-winning team, which missed a place in the ICC ODI World Cup to be held in India this year, was visible. The West Indies captain, who hit a flurry of fours and sixes, played an amazing century in the Caribbean Premier League. During this innings, he hit 4 sixes and 2 fours in one over.
Currently, many T20 leagues are organized in the world on the lines of the Indian Premier League. The West Indies team, which once ruled world cricket, is having to struggle even to make it to the World Cup. The captain of the team, which lost its hopes of making it to the tournament after losing against Zimbabwe in this year’s World Cup qualifiers, scored the fastest century of the tournament.
30 runs scored in carnival over
Shai Hope, who played for Guyana Amazon Warriors, scored half-century in 23 balls while hitting 8 fours and as many sixes in 41 balls, he scored 100. During this, Rakheem hit 4 sixes and 2 fours in the carnival over. After hitting a four on the first ball of the bowler’s 16th over of the innings, Hope hit three sixes in a row and then a four and then another six to end the over.
Record of fastest century in CPL
The record of scoring the fastest century in the history of the Caribbean Premier League is held in the name of Andre Russell. In 2016, while playing for Jamaica Tallawahs, he scored a century with the help of 11 sixes and 3 fours in 40 balls against Trinbago Knight Riders. Shai Hope scored the second fastest century of the tournament for Guyana Amazon Warriors against Barbados Royals in 41 balls.
