T20 International Fastest Century - T20 Cricket

Richard Levi of South  African , enjoyed his second international match mesmerized New Zealand at Sodden Park in Hamilton on 19 February 2012 with a 45 ball century.
Kiwis knew little about this right handed bulky batsman and ended up bowling him on his pads repeatedly. Levi, taking advantage of short square boundaries, smashed 13 sixes and 5 fours in his unbeaten knock, equaling highest T20 score as well.

Previously, Chris Gayle of West Indies record of quickest T20 century along with his 50 ball ton against South Africans in inaugural World T20. Brendon McCullum of New Zealanad recent  once scored a 50 ball T20 hundred against Australia at city, another smallish ground.

Will we have a tendency to see Richard blue jean record broken someday? most likely, however extremely unlikely. till that happens, here's the list of quickest T20 centuries thus far. 

In following, we've listed the quantity of balls vie by that baseball player to finish his century similarly as fours and sixes hit and so another column showing his final innings score.
