Fastest Century in IPL

By Hitesh Jain on Aug 3, 2021

A new era in cricket began with the advent of the Indian Premier League (IPL). As a result, no score feels out of reach any longer. The League has seen interesting and skilled strikers raise their bats and helmets to the clouds, scoring some of the fastest hundred in IPL history. There are certain batters who can transform the game in a matter of minutes, leaving no time for their opponents to regroup. In the T20 innings, when a batsman scores a century, his side has an advantage. Particularly if this century arrives at a breathtaking pace, the team's chances of victory are much higher.

The fastest hundred in IPL history is mentioned below:

Chris Gayle - 2013 (30 Balls)

Chris Gayle owns the record for the quickest IPL hundred. As part of the 2013 IPL, Gayle scored 175 runs off 66 balls against the Pune Warriors team. With 17 sixes and 13 fours, Gayle's historic inning was nothing short of spectacular. During his stunning performance, the left-hander made the hundred in only 30 balls. Gayle's century helped RCB record a massive total of 263/5 in 20 overs. In the end, Pune scored just 133/9 and lost by 130 runs.

Yusuf Pathan- 2010 (37 Balls)

Indian player Yusuf Pathan holds second place in this list. In 2010, he scored a century in 37 balls against the Mumbai Indians, the 2nd quickest century in IPL history. Yusuf Pathan has been one of Rajasthan Royals' most impressive players. To reach his century, he struck 11 continuous boundaries, including eight sixes and nine fours. As a result of Yusuf's dismissal, Rajasthan Royals fell short of their 213-run goal. Despite scoring 208/7 in their 20 overs, Rajasthan fell short by 4 runs in the match. 

David Miller - 2013 (38 Balls)

David Miller's historic 101-run innings versus RCB in IPL 2013 saw him strike a century in 38 balls. It was RCB's second innings target of 191 runs that they reached as Punjab scored only 64/4 in 9.5 overs in their second innings. Punjab chased down the difficult mark in only 18 overs with six wickets to spare thanks to Miller's brilliant performance.

Adam Gilchrist - 2008 (42 Balls)

Adam Gilchrist scored a century off 42 balls in the first season of the Indian Premier League. As Mumbai Indians set Deccan Chargers 155 runs in 20 overs, Gilchrist took care of it in just 12 overs. This match was won by DC by a margin of 10 wickets. Known as one of the most destructive batters in history, the Australian legend had a long and successful career.

AB de Villiers - 2016 (43 Balls)

In 43 balls, AB de Villers scored 129 runs for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). A total of 12 sixes and 10 fours were recorded throughout the century.
