The IPL is never bereft of knocks from batsmen that are fast, furious and belligerent. Every season we see countless whirlwind knocks from different batsmen. Hence, as we eagerly await the 10th edition of the championship, it is a good time to look back at the five fastest hundreds in IPL history that simply blew us away.
5. 43 balls – AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
v Gujarat Lions, Bengaluru, IPL 2016
After an uneven tournament initially, AB de Villiers of RCB finally showed his best in this match against the Gujarat Lions. Starting cautiously and then gradually displaying the full range of his 360-degree play, De Villiers crafted the most beautiful and wondrous hundred. De Villiers reached his hundred off only 43 balls and ended up scoring a majestic 129 off 52 balls with 10 fours and 12 sixes. This was truly ABD at his classiest best.
