AB de Villiers scores fastest half century & fastest century in ODI cricket history [Video]

“AB’s 31 balls spanned as 4 2 1 1 4 6 4 6 6 0 2 2 1lb 1 6 6 6 4 6 1 4 1 1 0 4 4 0 6 4 6 6.”

De Villiers’ century came up in just 31 balls against the West Indies in the 2nd ODI at Johannesburg.

The 30-year-old arrived at the crease after a 247-run opening wicket partnership between Rilee Rossouw and Hashim Amla, who both went on to make hundreds.

De Villiers’ hundred included 8 boundaries and 10 sixes.

The South African broke the record of New Zealand batsman Corey Anderson who held the record for the fastest hundred scoring it off 36 balls against West Indies last year.

De Villiers raced to 50 off 16 deliveries to surpass Sanath Jayasuriya‘s 19-year record for the fastest ODI fifty.

He ended up with 149 off 44 balls, hitting nine fours and 16 sixes, the latter equalling the record for the most number of maximums in an ODI innings.
