Fastest Ever ODI Century: Afridi's 37 balls of mayhem (1996)

Playing his maiden international innings Shaid Afridi hit the fastest OneDay century off 37 balls against Sri Lanka in Nairobi.

His innings included 28 runs off one of Sanath Jayasuriya's overs whose record he broke. His general style of batting is very aggressive and attack oriented and has earned him the nickname of "Boom Boom Afridi" for his fastest ODI century.
