The fastest centuries by number of balls faced were achieved in 27 balls, by Glen Chapple and Mark Pettini - though both were achieved by farcical Bowling by the defending side attempting to set up a declaration.

The fastest century against genuine bowling by number of balls faced is David Hookes' 34-ball century for South Australia against Victoria in 1982-83.
