New Delhi. This year’s ICC ODI World Cup in India saw the stormy style of the two-time world-winning captain miss out on a spot. The West Indies captain, who hit explosive fours and sixes, scored a brilliant century in the Caribbean Premier League. During this innings he hit 4 sixes and 2 fours in one over.
Currently, several T20 leagues are organized around the world on the lines of the Indian Premier League. The West Indies team, which once ruled the world cricket, is also struggling to get a place in the World Cup. The captain scored the fastest century of the tournament after losing to Zimbabwe in this year’s World Cup qualifiers, which lost hope of a place in the tournament.
30 runs scored in the carnival over
Shai Hope, playing for Guyana’s Amazon Warriors, scored a 23-ball half-century while scoring 100 runs off 41 balls with 8 fours and six sixes. Meanwhile, Rakhim hit 4 sixes and 2 fours in the carnival over. After hitting a four off the first ball of the 16th over of the innings, Hope hit three consecutive sixes and then a four and then another six.
Record for fastest century in CPL
Andre Russell holds the record for the fastest century in the history of the Caribbean Premier League. In the year 2016, while playing for Jamaica Tallawahs, he scored a 40-ball century against Trinbago Knight Riders with 11 sixes and 3 fours. Shai Hope scored the second-fastest century of the tournament for Guyana’s Amazon Warriors, scoring the feat in 41 balls against the Barbados Royals.
