The 28th match of the Pakistan Super League saw Multan Sultans' Usman Khan smash the fastest century in the tournament's history.
Playing his first game of this year's PSL at the expense of veteran batter Shan Masood, Usman was in his element as he smashed a blistering century on Saturday night, blasting Quetta Gladiators to all parts of the ground to tumble records.
The right-handed explosive batter quickly got off the blocks and reached his fifty off 22 balls. He scored 27 runs in the over of Qais Ahmed with the help of three sixes and two fours, courtesy of his blazing fifty.
Multan was able to score 91 runs in the powerplay. Usman's opening partner Mohammad Rizwan continued to play second fiddle to propel the team to a score of 100 in the seventh over. However, the 27-year-old was in no mood to spare the Quetta bowlers.
He continued on his merry way and smashed the fastest century of PSL off just 36 balls, beating his teammate Rilee Rossouw's record, as Multan Sultans brought up their 150 inside ten overs.
The young Multan opener was outfoxed by Quetta skipper Mohammad Nawaz after scoring 120 off 43 balls, including 12 fours and nine sixes.
It is pertinent to note that Martin Guptill dropped Usman on the fence off Nawaz's bowling.
The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League continues to impress with high-scoring thrillers, and the ongoing match between Multan and Quetta is also expected to go down the wire.
