REUTERS: New Zealand captain Sophie Devine hit the fastest hundred in women’s Twenty20 cricket on Thursday, hitting the milestone in just 36 balls in the domestic Super Smash competition.

Devine, 31, didn’t hit out nine sixes and nine fours in her 108 innings, as her Wellington Blaze squad beat the Otago Sparks by 10 wickets.

The all-rounder broke the previous record that had been set since 2010: a hundred of 38 balls from the West Indian Deandra Dottin.

Devine said she felt nervous when she returned from 14 days in isolation after returning from Australia.

“Anytime you have a longer break from the game, you get nervous about getting back in,” she told Spark Sport.

So it was just (fun) to spend some time in the middle and get some out of the screws.

“Sometimes I can get a little carried away … and I get a little too eager and play some rash shots, so it was nice to stick with some decent cricket shots today and get the job done.”

One of Devine’s six grazed the cheek of a girl who watched from the lawn at University Oval in Dunedin.

After the game, Devine went to check on the girl, who had an ice pack on her face but seemed to have avoided a serious injury.

A video posted to https://twitter.com/WHITE_FERNS/status/1349543971840671745 on the New Zealand women’s cricket team’s Twitter account showed Devine posing for a photo with the girl.
