The 20-year-old, who scored 63 as England Lions drew their unofficial Test against India A in February, ended up unbeaten on 105no from 30 deliveries as Surrey ran out victors.
“People were just chatting that 120-130 was an average score so I just wanted to try and have fun, that was it,” Jacks told Surrey’s official Twitter account. “I didn’t even think about the hundred until I was on 98. It all happened quite quickly!”
There have been some quickfire centuries against declaration bowling in first-class cricket, the fastest coming off 27 balls – a feat achieved by both Mark Pettini for Essex against Leicestershire and Glen Chapple, for Lancashire against Glamorgan in 1993.
In 1931, Don Bradman hit a hundred for a Blackheath XI against Lithgow in three eight-ball overs – his batting partner Wendell Bill chipping in with two singles.
More recently, India’s Wriddhiman Saha hit a 20-ball century in a club game for Mohun Bagan – striking an unbeaten 102 against Bengal Nagpur Railways (BNR) at Kalighat.
