becomes first to three T20 centuries Colin Munro

Colin Munro became the first batsman to score three hundreds in T20 internationals. The left-handed New Zealand opener achieved this feat by making 104 off 53 balls with three fours and 10 sixes in the third and final T20 match against West Indies at Mount Maunganui on Wednesday (January 3).

New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat with Munro and Martin Guptill providing a glorious start to the hosts. Munro’s 104 run knock featured three boundaries and ten sixes while sharing a 136 run stand for the opening wicket. Guptill, on the other hand, scored 63 runs from 38 balls laced with five fours and two sixes. Tom Bruce (23 from 14) and Kane Williamson (19 from 8) also chipped in with cameos to take New Zealand’s total to 243/5 in the 20 overs. West Indies are yet to win a match in the series having already lost the three Test and ODI matches.

If New Zealand win the series 2-0, they will leapfrog Pakistan to become the top-ranked T20 international team in the world.

It has been a disappointing tour so far for the West Indies with New Zealand winning the Test and one-day series and are one-up in the T20s.

Game two was washed out on Monday after New Zealand had cracked 102 for four off nine overs. Munro was in great form in that match too.
