Alyssa's century came off only 46 balls, the fastest ever!
AS SOME of you will know ... I did not play much sport as a youngster, only a little soccer and kitted myself out in all black a-la-Lev Yashin, the superstar Russian keeper of the 1960s. I learnt to love sports when I became an instant sports reporter. That has been true of most sports I covered but especially of cricket. In my life, I have only ever played social cricket. I learnt the game from players and coaches.
