Former England U-19 batsman Will Jacks smashed a hundred in just 25 balls during a pre-season T10 match for Surrey against Lancashire in Dubai. Jacks clobbered the Lancashire bowlers at will to all parts of the park, reminding fans of cricket video games wherein scoring can be ridiculously easy.

Jacks also smashed six sixes in an over when he took Stephen Parry of Lancashire to the cleaners in the fifth over of Surrey’s innings. The 20-year-old went from 62 to 98 in a span of six deliveries and got to his hundred in the following over.

Jacks could have gotten to the three-figure mark earlier as he had reached 98 in just 22 balls. However, he faced a couple of dot balls against Croft before reaching his hundred with a crisply-timed cover drive.


Jacks eventually was dismissed in the ninth over for 105 off 30 balls. He perished while trying to clear the long-on boundary. Thanks to Jacks superhuman hitting, Surrey finished with 176 for 3 in their 10-over quota.
