    Well it was only a matter of time, still Afridi held the record for about 18 years or so. It was an extremely small ground, 36 balls is still a herculean type effort by Anderson.

    Records are made to be broken one day. Though this match was more of a T20 than an ODI as the match was reduced to 21 overs each side. But this was some crazy batting by NZ. Two tons by NZ batsmen in 21 overs. :lol

    Lala will break this record and will make a 30 ball 100. :p

    I did not expect that record to go for a long long time, very surprised but looks like the circumstances were ideal for the record to go - a 50 over game reduced to what was essentially a 20/20 match so a player could take continued risk and played in NZ which have tiny boundaries.

    A tad unlucky for Afridi really, not often will the above scenario be replicated

    not sure why the Indians would be pleased - Jesse Ryder got his century in 46 balls? thats one more delivery than it took for Afridi's 45 ball century in the Kanpur Massacre

    Afridi will soon get the record back, inshallah. This time, 100 in 17 deliveries.

    The question is for how many Odi matches did the Afridi's record stand?

    "Records are made to be broken, I
    broke Jayasuriya's record, Corey
    Anderson broke my record," says
    Shahid Afridi.
    Afridi broke Jayasuriya's record after
    6 months while Anderson broke
    Afridi's record after 17 years.

    Records are meant to be broken but I had this pride that a Pakistani had the record which is broken on a really small ground. Im sure any Indian player is capable to break that record as well if its the same New Zealand ground.

    Theoretically the record had to be broken at some point but I wasn't expecting it to be broken. I guess it can be broken again since if you hit a boundary off every ball (sixes will be too hard) you can do it in 25 deliveries (without extras).

    Dead tracks these days, won't be too hard to defeat, records are there to be broken though wasn't expecting this at all. Afridi must have got the worst new years gift ever, what must be going through his head .. insh' Allah Afridi will get back his record. #TimeForBOOMBOOM!

    Afridi's 100 was scored in ODI# 1125.
    Anderson's 100 came in ODI# 3451.

    2325 ODIs were played between two 100s.

    Generally they are used to "most records" e.g. "most runs", "most 100s", "most this", "most that". Those records automatically come if you play more matches that most of the other players.

    Other than Sehwag's highest ODI innings, they pretty much have to live with "most" records. Knowing the value of those records, they are just happy to see a "non-most" record leave their arch rival. Little do they know that records are meant to be broken.
