Batting a strike rate of 268 for more than 50 runs is an outstanding effort even in modern-day cricket. Doing the same in the year 2000 was madcap crazy; coming it from a bowler would have been extraordinary.

India pacer Ajit Agarkar played a blinder against Zimbabwe in December 2000 in Rajkot. He assaulted the bowling attack comprising Heath Streak, Grant Flower, Bryan Strang, and Brian Murphy for a knock of 67 runs in 25 balls, rolling to his fifty off just 21 balls – a record for an Indian batsman standing till date. Kapil Dev, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, and Rahul Dravid are all behind Agarkar with half-centuries off 22 balls.
