Smith smashes Lancs record

Smith smashes Lancs record

Tom Smith today smashed the Lancashire record books, with the fastest one-day century for the county

The left handed all-rounder took the unfortunate Worcestershire Royals atttack apart with a quite stunning display.

Tom beat Andrew Flintoff's 50-ball century (v Essex in 1999) by reaching three figures from 44 balls, with 8 fours and 10 sixes. He did it style too, reaching his century with a six.

It is also the 5th-equal fastest century in List A cricket:-

Fastest hundreds:
36 Graham Rose (110)  for Somerset v Devon (Torquay, 1990)
37 Shahid Afridi (102) for Pakistan v Sri Lanka (Nairobi, 1996)
40 YK Pathan (108*) for Baroda v Maharashtra (Ahmedabad, 2009)
43 Ryan Watson (103*) for Scotland v Somerset (Edinburgh, 2003)

Smith was eventually out for 105 at the end of the 15th over, with Lancashire 150-1.

Lancashire's total of 324-4 was also their highest-ever total in a 40-over game.
