South Australia batter Jake Fraser-McGurk smashed the fastest limited over century in 29 balls during the Marsh Cup match against Tasmania at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on Sunday.
Fraser-McGurk’s century beat the previous record of 31 balls achieved by AB de Villiers in 2015 against West Indies. De Villiers ended the innings with a score of 149 in 44 balls, which included nine fours and 16 sixes.
Fraser-McGurk reached his fifty off 18 balls, the fastest for an Australian batter in 50-over cricket.
The 21-year-old was eventually dismissed for 125 off 38 balls, hitting 10 fours and 13 sixes in his knock. This was Fraser-McGurk’s first ever domestic century since his debut for Victoria against Queensland at Melbourne in 2019.
South Australia was chasing a record 436-run target set by the away side thanks to a century from Jordan Silk and quick-fire fifties from Caleb Jewell and Mac Wright. The previous record of 420 was set by South Australia in 2016 against Cricket Australia XI.
