Women can excel over men – even in cricket! West Indies can now boast of a world record – the fastest century by any cricket player irrespective of gender. West Indian Deandra Dottin of Barbados has earned the honor by scoring the fastest ever century in women’s World T-20 currently under way in St. Kitts. It took her just 38 deliveries – her first 50 came in 25 balls but the next 50 came in only 13 deliveries and comprised 9 sixes and 5 fours. Her feat eclipses the earlier records of Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum.
