    Marcus Trescothick 112 against Bangladesh, reached 100 of 38 balls with over 10 fours and 8 sixes! Has anyone scored a faster Test match hundred?

    This was a while ago, but I scored a century off 17 balls with Sanath Jayasuriya, which made my score 102.

    I hit 17 sixes in a row.

    I haven't got a score card, but I can assure the score is geniune.

    I ended getting out on 199, caught off an outside edge out on the cover boundary.

    I didn't go that crazy. Who were you playing? When I play like that I usually get caught at some point.

    I was playing against Pakistan.

    I sort of cheated by saving the game at the end of every over, so if I got out, I could just go back to the start of the over.

    Did you get out and start again? Or did you actually score the runs without getting out?

    Yeah, I got out a couple of times, so I went back to the start of the over :;):

    I never thought of doing that with cricket games but I do it managing games, just save it before each match and load it again if you loose. But I don't think I'll try it on the cricket, I'll try and win properly. Playing very sportsmanly or whatever they call it.
