Scintillating record in domestic arena

Notably, Fraser-McGurk has been making waves with his performances at various levels. The 21-year-old right-handed batter has been turning heads with his exceptional skills, catching the attention of seasoned cricketers. Fraser-McGurk stepped into the spotlight in October of this year when he made headlines for surpassing the record set by South African legend AB de Villiers for the fastest hundred in List A cricket.

In the 7th match of the Marsh Cup 2023-24 against Tasmania, representing South Australia, Fraser-McGurk displayed sheer brilliance and dominance, smashing a scintillating century off only 29 deliveries. This remarkable feat shattered the previous world record held by De Villiers, who had reached his hundred in 31 balls against West Indies in 2015.
