Kings XI Punjab opener Mayank Agarwal slams IPL hundred for the first time, 2nd fastest by Indian batsman
In IPL 2020, Mayank Agarwal's 100 out of 45 balls against the Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah is now the second fastest by Indian batsman in tournament history. 7 sixes and nine fours were toned by the Kings XI Punjab opener as the Rajasthan Royals attack wilted under the weight of the power hitting from Mayank Agarwal.
Mayank Agarwal brought up his maiden IPL hundred with a four off Shreyas Gopal. Before bringing up the 100-run stand - a ball later - with skipper KL Rahul with another maximum, he had earlier notched up his fifty with a six over off Shreyas Gopal over long-off, this time over the bowler's head. In the process, the Karnataka duo racked up the season's highest opening partnership, exceeding 94, between Shikhar Dhawan & Prithvi Shaw vs Chennai Super Kings in Dubai.
Yusuf Pathan holds a record for the IPL’s fastest 100 by an Indian. Yusuf Pathan's 100 out of 37 balls in Mumbai in 2010 was studded with 8 sixes and nine fours.
