Corey James Anderson (born 13 December 1990) is a New Zealand cricketer who plays for Northern Districts.[1] Anderson made his debut for New Zealand in a One Day International held on 16 June 2013 against England.[2]

On January 1, 2014, Corey Anderson shot to fame by becoming the cricketer to score the fastest century in the history of One Day International cricket or any other format of international cricket. Playing against West Indies, he scored his ton in just 36 balls breaking Shahid Afridi's record of 37 deliveries in 1996 against Sri Lanka. Anderson finished the innings unbeaten on 131 in 47 balls hitting 14 sixes and 6 fours.

Domestic career[edit]

Anderson came into the Canterbury Wizards Squad in the 2006/07 season freshly promoted from his performances for the New Zealand under-19 cricket team. He also played for his High School 1st XI team at Christchurch Boys High School including playing in the side which won three consecutive Gillette Cups from 2005 to 2007.

Anderson was also jointly named player of the Gillette cup in 2006 when he shared this honor with current Blackcap Tim Southee.

In 2007 Anderson received a playing contract from New Zealand Cricket, making him the youngest player in New Zealand first-class cricket history to gain a contract.

Anderson has yet to show his full potential at first class level and after several injuries interrupted seasons with shoulder and groin injuries, Corey Anderson transferred to Northern Districts at the start of the 2011/12 season to restart his promising career. In 2014, Anderson joined the Mumbai Indians, defending champions of the IPL at 4.5 crore INR. On the 25th May 2014, he scored 95 runs off 44 balls to make his team's (Mumbai Indians) way to the playoffs when they had to get 190 in 14.3 overs against and eliminating the Rajasthan Royals.

On 1 January 2014, at the Queenstown Events Centre Anderson broke Shahid Afridi's 17 year old record of the fastest ODI hundred by one ball, scoring his in 36 balls. He eventually ended with an unbeaten 131 that featured 14 sixes and 6 fours [3] Along with Jesse Ryder, he helped New Zealand set the team record for the most sixes in an ODI innings.
