Australia’s Meg Lanning becomes quickest to reach 11th hundreds in women’s limited overs cricket

Australian Captain and opener Meg Lanning once again hogged the headlines as his side comfortably brushed aside Sri Lanka in round robin game played in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2017 played in England and Wales. While Chamari Atapattu showed courage and resilience for Sri Lanka to score unbeaten 178 runs but it was not enough as Australia’s Meg Lanning produced another sublime hundred to steer his side to victory. Lanning scored 152 runs off 135 balls and smashed 19 boundaries in his innings.

Lanning struck his eleventh ton of his limited overs career for Australia and also became the quickest to score 11 hundreds in least number of innings. She took only 59 innings to reach the milestone even quicker than Superstars like Hashim Amla and Virat Kohli. She sits on the top for cricketer with most centuries in the one day game while Charlotte Edwards is second on the list. New Zealand’s Suzie Bates is also close behind with eight hundreds to her name in the limited overs cricket.
