The record for the fastest-ever century in international cricket was broken in Queenstown on Tuesday.
All-rounder Corey Anderson needed just 36 balls to reach the hundred, one fewer than the 37 needed by the previous record holder, Pakistan's Shahid Afridi to make 100.
The 23-year-old's triumph helped the Black Caps beat the West Indies by 159 runs.
Anderson says he was greatly helped by the performance of batting partner Jesse Ryder, who also made a century.
Anderson ended the game unbeaten on 131.
