South Africa sets a new tournament record with Markram's fastest century

South Africa made 428-5 against Sri Lanka in Delhi, the greatest score in World Cup history. Aiden Markram scored the fastest hundred in the competition.

Markram reached his century off of 49 balls, which was one fewer than Kevin O'Brien of Ireland needed to get his against England in Bangalore in 2011.

After Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen had both scored 100, he was finally sent out for 106, having started the game on 54.

Then, Australia's 417-6 win against Afghanistan in 2015 was surpassed when David Miller scored.

Sri Lanka, led by ex-England coach Chris Silverwood, capitulated among the destruction on a flat ground.

Due to a slow over-rate, they gave up 21 wides and had to bowl the final two overs with an extra fielder inside the circle.

From the 43rd over on, seamer Matheesha Pathirana gave up 26 runs while taking just one wicket in a total of 95 runs scored off of his 10 overs.

Also, this was the first time ever in a Men's World Cup that three hitters scored century in the same innings.
