Twenty two-year-old Sanju Samson smashed IPL10's first century, becoming the second-youngest player to get to the mark in the shortest format.
On Thursday, he had company.
Hashim Amla, aged 31 and at the other end of a cricketer's career-span, became the second centurion of this IPL. Playing against Mumbai Indians at Indore, the KXIP opener needed just 60 deliveries to smash his first-ever T20 century.
No reason why Twitter wouldn’t celebrate the legend's career landmark. Preity Zinta and AB de Villiers, among others, tweeted out their congratulatory messages.
Take a look!
