New Zealand cricket's newest near-millionairre Corey Anderson is crediting the world's fastest one day century for propelling him into the riches of the Indian Premier League.

The big-hitting all-rounder was bought for 867,000 dollars by defending champions the Mumbai Indians after several impressive innings for the Black Caps, including his world record 36-ball century against the West Indies earlier this summer.

The 23-year-old admits that record breaking innings in Queenstown in December has changed his life.

Anderson was the most expensive of the five New Zealanders picked up in the IPL auction, Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum attracting the next biggest sum, bought by the Chennai Super Kings for $630,000.
