HOVE — New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris tied for the third-fastest century in Twenty20 history off 37 deliveries as Sussex beat Gloucestershire in the English Trophy quarter-finals.

Styris whacked nine sixes and five fours, reaching a half-century in 24 balls and needing only another 13 to reach three figures on Tuesday.

Fast bowler James Fuller was lashed for 38 runs in one over.

Australia’s Andrew Symonds holds the T20 record for fastest century, taking 34 balls for Kent against Middlesex in July 2004.
