World record sees men's fastest ever T20I century hit just 27 balls

The Estonian number four hit 24 boundaries in his innings, including 18 maximums, scoring at a strike rate of 351.21 as he decimated Cyprus' bowling attack.

And he completed his century off just 27 balls, bettering the previous record, set by Namibia's Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton in February this year, by six full deliveries.

Chauhan's 18 sixes also constitute a new men's T20I record for a single innings in this format. Afghanistan's Hazratullah Zazai and New Zealand's Finn Allen had already tied the record with 16 each.
