ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Records and Statistics: Which batter has recorded the fastest 100 in the history of the cricket world cup?

The International Cricket Council (ICC), the governing body of men’s cricket, hosts the World Cricket Championship, a notable One Day International (ODI) competition. The competition has maintained a consistent four-year schedule since its first run, held in the UK. Although the ICC has announced its desire to streamline the format in response to criticism after the 2007 World Cup, the number of teams participating and the number of matches has increased. Feedback aimed at improving the structure and appeal of the contest influenced this decision. 

Cricket World Cup has always been the best place for international cricket nations to compete for supremacy and show off their skills. These players continued to have incredible records as the competition grew, marking the history of cricket. The top five scorers for fastest 100 in World Cricket Championship history are highlighted in thisa article along with their contributions and influence on the game.  

Rank Balls Player Opposition Venue Date
1 50 Kevin O’Brien England M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore 2 March 2011
2 51 Glenn Maxwell Sri Lanka Sydney Cricket Ground , Sydney 8 March 2015
3 52 AB De Villiers West Indies Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney 27 February 2015
4 57 Eoin Morgan Afghanistan Old Trafford, Manchester 18 June 2019
5 66 Matthew Hayden South Africa Warner Park Sporting Complex, Basseterre 24 March 2007

Matthew Hayden

During the World Cup group stage match against South Africa in St. Kitts in the 2007 World Cup, Hayden soon established his dominance. All in all, of the open partnership between Adam Gilchrist and Hayden, Gilchrist is the most explosive. Then there are times when the two attack, and in rare cases, Hayden is the aggressor while Gilchrist plays the tabloid.  With Hayden’s 101 points from just 68 serves with a success rate of nearly 150 and taking up 14 quarters of the sixth inning, the first goal gave Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke a stellar lead over Australia in numbers. 377 sumptuous.  

Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan broke the record for most goals scored in six international matches spanning a day with a stunning display in England’s 150th win over Afghanistan at the World Cup.The captain hit 17 6s while making 148 from 71 balls, his daring and daring strike providing great entertainment to the Old Trafford crowd who engulfed him. Morgan surpassed the best of the previous 16 held jointly by Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rohit Sharma, and England’s 25-six total also set a new record for any team in the ODI leg.

AB De Villiers

Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers recalled the 162 whirlwinds from his 66 balls against the West Indies at the 2015 ODI World Cup and revealed he was ill and slept before hitting the pitch. The West Indies are one of De Villiers’ favorite teams going head-to-head as he reached the fastest century in match history against them so far in January 2015. In 24 games against them, De Villiers scored 1279 against them at an average of 67.32 and reached five centuries four and fifty. The former South Africa captain hit the 150 marks fastest that day in Sydney against the West Indies as South Africa scored 408 runs. 

Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell set the record for the fastest ODI of the century by an Australian, lifting his first ton on 51 balls.His century paved the way for Australia’s 64-game win over Sri Lanka, despite several other batting heroes from the opposition. Australia set a towering 9-376 after Maxwell’s century, setting up a place in the quarterfinals following the team’s recent loss to New Zealand. Maxwell hit triple figures in Sunday’s World Cup clash with a chip-hit against Sri Lanka’s Seekkuge Prasanna in 46th place.

Kevin O’Brien 

Kevin O’Brien stunned England with the fastest 100-man match in World Cup history as Ireland claimed their heaviest win with an epic three-stroke win in Bangalore. O’Brien hit a stunning 113 from 63 serves as Ireland won the World Cup top-scoring chase with four spare balls. After adding a 162-changing match with Alex Cusack, John Mooney joined him to play the rounds in his life and help write another famous chapter in Irish sport. With a broken partnership with 55 players still needed, Ireland may have lost out, especially since O’Brien was unable to recover the attack.
