Retirement has its perks at least for former West Indies opener Dwayne Smith.

The hard hitting Barbadian scored the second fastest century in T20 history Wednesday, after his Kowloon Cantons defeated Chris Jordan and Nicholas Pooran's City Kaitak in the Hong Kong T20 league.

Sent into bat, Kaitak posted 199 for six from their 20 overs.

Opener Kyle Coetzer lead with 87 while Jordan ended unbeaten on 75 from 37, hitting 6 sixes and three fours.

Both Rayad Emrit and Nicholas Pooran went without scoring.

In reply Smith's Kowloon Cantons eased to the huge total, scoring 200 with 33 balls to spare.

Player of the match Smith ended unbeaten on 121 from 40 deliveries, smashing seven fours and 13 huge sixes.

It was just one ball above Chris Gayle's 30 ball century which holds the record for the fastest T20 ton.

He was part of a third wicket partnership of 142 not out with Marlon Samuels who made 59 from 33.
