Sophie Devine

World record for Devine in Dunedin

The White Ferns captain thumped the fastest century in women's T20 history, from just 36 balls, to lead Wellington to a 10-wicket win over Otago in their domestic T20 match in Dunedin on Thursday.

Devine, who was playing her first game in almost eight weeks and only left managed isolation on Sunday having returned from the Women's Big Bash League in Australia, finished with 108 not out from 38 balls.

The sublime display, which included nine sixes and nine fours, helped the defending champion Blaze reached their target of 129 in only the ninth over.
