South Australia's Jake Fraser-McGurk has scored the fastest century in List A cricket, reaching the milestone in just 29 deliveries in a domestic one-day match against Tasmania in Adelaide on Sunday. Fraser-McGurk reached his hundred in the eighth over of the run chase at Karen Rolton Oval, bettering the record of 31 deliveries by South Africa's AB de Villiers against the West Indies in 2015.

The 21-year-old blasted a half-century off 18 deliveries, an Australian one-day domestic record, and he needed just 11 more balls to bring up his ton, including taking 32 runs off one over.

The opener was eventually dismissed for 125 off 38 balls, with ten fours and 13 sixes.

South Australia was chasing Tasmania's imposing total of 435-9, which is the highest total in Australian domestic one-day history.

Fraser-McGurk's milestone comes a day after South Africa's Aiden Markram hit the World Cup's fastest-ever century off 49 balls.
