Delhi' s wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant smashed an unbeaten 116 off just 38 deliveries here at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground on Sunday against Himachal in a North Zone T20 League fixture, leading his team to a thumping 10-wicket victory.
Pant who reached the triple figure mark in just 32 balls, became the second-fastest batsman in T20 history to score a century. His knock included 12 sixes and eight fours.
The record for the fastest century still lies with Windies legend Chris Gayle who scored a 100 off 30 deliveries for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Pune Warriors in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match, back in 2013.
Nikhil Gangta (40) was the top scorer for Himachal.
Pant, who batted with a phenomenal strike rate of 305.26, also took four catches behind the wicket.
