Stats insights

Before Gayle, the record was held by Yusuf Pathan, who scored a 37-ball hundred in the 2010 season for Rajasthan Royals. His quick-fire knock is still the fastest century by an Indian batsman and the quickest century by a non-opening batsman. Besides, it is also the fastest century while chasing a target, but the chase wasn’t successful even after Pathan’s magnificence. And, that’s why we rate him among these underrated gems of IPL.

The top rank holder, Gayle, ranks only at the 5th position when it comes to scoring the fastest IPL fifty. It is KL Rahul who holds that tag with a 14-balls fifty against Delhi in 2018. Here’s the top 10 list.

David Miller’s 101* off 38 deliveries is the quickest century scored in a successful chase.
