International career

On 19 February 2012, Levi scored 117* in a Twenty20 International innings against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton. The innings set new records for the sixes in an innings (13) and the fastest century (45 balls). He held the record for the most runs scored in a Twenty20 international innings tied with Chris Gayle.[3][4]

This was surpassed by Brendon McCullum on September 21, 2012 when he scored 123 against Bangladesh at Palakelle, Sri Lanka.

Levi has since struggled in International cricket, partly due to being a predominantly leg-side batsman and weak against spin bowling.

Indian Premier League

He played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL. He was reportedly signed for $400,000.[5]
