Malan scores England's quickest T20 century with extraordinary innings

New Zealand's highest T20 total conceded remains 245-5 against Australia at Eden Park in February past year.

A historic partnership between Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan has seen England level the five-match Twenty20 series at two apiece, though with rain forecast for the decider in Auckland on Sunday, there's no guarantee that fans will be able to witness a fair and fitting finale.

The pair posted the highest third-wicket partnership by any side in a T20 worldwide and the 241 is England´s highest total.

Malan became only the second Englishman to hit a century in a Twenty20 worldwide when he smacked his sixth six, reaching the mark quicker than Alex Hales with his 60-ball hundred against Sri Lanka during the 2014 World Cup. The previous record was held by Morgan and Alex Hales, who had together accumulated 152 against Sri Lanka in 2014. Malan completed his ton off 48 balls while Hales had taken 60 balls. Malan is also the second English batsman to hit a T20I century. They scored 20 or more runs in four of the last ten overs.

After all, this was Malan's sixth 50-plus score from just nine caps to date. The left-hander now has a century and five half centuries from nine worldwide innings and an average of 57.25. Overall, this was Malan's fourth century in all T20s. Three came from one Ish Sodhi over which went leaked 28 runs - the leg-spinner lucky his worst ball was only scuffed for two - and an over later Trent Boult was smoked into the stand over mid-wicket to bring up England's fastest Twenty20 hundred.

91 - Morgan's score in this game, which is his highest in T20Is going past his 85 not out versus South Africa in Johannesburg ten years ago.

After a blitzkrieg of boundaries by England's batsmen, Black Caps opener Martin Guptill has responded with a six out of the ground.

Malan's unbeaten century was the fastest by an Englishman in a T20 worldwide, beating by 12 balls Alex Hales' record of 60 deliveries and lifting England to 3-241, their highest score in the format. This was the third time he hit seven sixes in a T20I innings. He bettered Jos Buttler's 22-ball effort against Australia at Edgbaston past year.
