In a breathtaking display of power-hitting, Will Jacks of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) smashed his way into the record books with a scintillating century against Gujarat in the IPL 2024 T20 cricket series. Jacks stunning century not only secured RCB third win in the tournament but also left cricket fans in awe.

Batting first, Gujarat set a challenging target of 201 runs in the match held in Ahmedabad. Tamil Nadu players Sai Sudharsan and Shah Rukh Khan put up a formidable performance, scoring 84 and 58 runs respectively for the team. However, RCB response was nothing short of spectacular.

Opening the innings, Virat Kohli laid a solid foundation with a composed 70*, supported by Captain Du Plessis, who contributed 24 runs. But it was Will Jakes who stole the show with a breathtaking century.

Jacks, who scored his maiden IPL century, blazed his way to 100* off just 41 balls, earning him the well-deserved title of the man of the match. His innings was a masterclass in power-hitting and aggression, as he dominated the Gujarat bowlers from the moment he stepped onto the crease.

What truly set Jacks innings apart was his incredible acceleration after reaching his half-century. In a stunning display of power and precision, Jakes reached his fifty in 31 balls, but what followed was pure cricketing magic. In just the next 10 balls, he smashed his way to another 50 runs, reaching his century in just 41 balls.

In a moment of sheer brilliance, Jakes shattered Chris Gayle 11-year-old record as the fastest player to reach 100 runs from 50 in the history of the IPL. The previous record, held by Gayle, was a 13-ball 50 to 100 for Bengaluru against Pune in 2013.

But Jacks record-breaking innings didn’t stop there. In a display of fearless hitting, he took on Rashid Khan, regarded as the world’s number one T20 bowler, smashing him for 28 runs in a single over. This not only secured Jacks place in IPL history but also broke Chris Gayle record for the most runs scored in an over against Rashid Khan.

Jacks explosive century not only sealed a dramatic victory for RCB but also left fans and players alike in awe. As he sent the ball flying to all corners of the ground, even Virat Kohli couldn’t help but watch in amazement.

With this incredible performance, Will Jacks has announced himself as one of the most exciting talents in T20 cricket, and his record-breaking innings will be remembered as one of the greatest in IPL history.
