Multan Sultans Usman Khan has scored the fastest ton in the history of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by smashing a century in merely 36 balls during the 28th match of the ongoing season of the tournament.

The Sultans batter managed to make 120 runs on 43 balls with 12 fours and nine sixes, with a strike rate of 279.1, before being bowled out by Gladiators captain Mohammad Nawaz.

The top-order batter’s performance was so sensational that even the opponents had to acknowledge his prowess.

Taking to their Twitter handle, Quetta Gladiators tweeted: “Appreciation tweet for Usman Khan”

Usman’s ton is also the second-fastest century by a Pakistan cricketer in T20 cricket.
