Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Namibia batter, struck a hundred off just 33 balls against Nepal, the quickest ever in the history of men's T20Is.

Loftie-Eaton achieved this landmark in the first T20I of the Nepal Tri-Nation T20I series against the hosts.

Smashing 11 fours and eight sixes, the batter scored 101 off just 36 deliveries, reaching the hundred milestone on the 33rd delivery with a four.

Loftie-Eaton broke the record of Nepal's Kushal Malla, who hit a hundred off 34 balls versus Mongolia in 2023.

The Nepalese batter had overtaken the record from David Miller, who hit a 35-ball century against Bangladesh in 2017.

Overall, the fastest century in international cricket came off 31 balls, which South Africa's AB de Villiers had hit against the West Indies in an ODI back in 2015.
