5th Match: Bangladesh v Pakistan at Dambulla, Jun 21, 2010 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
I think it might be this match, and the player is Shahid Afridi. Afridi started his innings in the 28th over.
Surely any T20 ton is better than that for the question you asked? When Razzaq began his innings there were 124 legal deliveries left potentially.
Yeah, I mean that was the one I was thinking of when I asked the question.
In T20Is it's easy, there are only 2 tons scored by non-openers, one by McCullum and one by Raina. Raina's started in the first over and McCullum's in the 4th.

The ball has to "pitch in line between wicket and wicket or on the off side of the striker’s wicket". So if I understand your question, we're really only talking about being in line with leg stump here, as the law states that it needs to pitch in line between wicket and wicket, or on the off side of the striker's wicket. So, for the ball to "pitch" in line, at least half of it needs to be "in line" (between leg stump and leg stump).
However, if you've ever played lower grade or social, self umpired cricket, you know the whole LBW law is a pile of ****. Everything is either "going down leg", "pitched outside leg", or "too high", or the batsman was "too far forward"!
