Will Smeed, a young Englishman, makes history by becoming the first person to score a century in the year one hundred

Witness the first-ever century scored by a child in England’s history by young Will Smeed.

Twenty-one year old English batsman Will Smeed, batting for Birmingham Phoenix, hit the first century of the hundred-ball competition, marking a significant milestone in the ongoing edition of The Hundred. On Wednesday at Edgbaston, against Southern Brave, the 20-year-old accomplished the feat. Smeed hit the first century of The Hundred event in just 49 deliveries by smashing the Brave bowlers to all parts of the stadium. Birmingham Phoenix posted 176 thanks to his contribution, and subsequently, Southern Brave were bowled out for 123.

Smeed said it was a “fantastic performance” after his historic knock at the Edgbaston ground.

“In all candour, that was a fantastic sensation. You can usually count on a busy night in Edgbaston. The lesson here is that not every attempt must result in a home run. T20s have an unusual format. It was an excellent performance, in my opinion. From here, let’s hope things pick up steam “said Smeed during the award ceremony that followed the game.

Birmingham Phoenix didn’t waste their first-inning batting position by not showing up to the game. As a result of Smeed’s outstanding performance, Birmingham reached 176 for 4 in their innings. For the Southern Brave, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Jordan, Jake Lintott, and James Fuller all took one wicket apiece.

Later, Birmingham Phoenix never gave Southern Brave’s batters a chance, consistently striking them out. The squad was all out for 123, giving the Phoenix a 53-run triumph. Bowling-wise, Kane Richardson stood out as the best option thanks to his three wicket haul.
