South African batsman AB De Villiers hits the fastest century off 31 balls and made a history in ODI (One day international cricket)! Mighty De Villiers literally smashed West Indies bowling line up with eights fours and ten sixes in the way to his century.
How AB De Villiers hits the fastest century in ODI history:
Protean batsman De Villiers sets the new landmark of record by his splendid performance against West Indies. Opener Hasim Amla and Rilee Rossouw also hit century individually. But all those are faded by the extraordinary shots of De Villiers. What a show of boundaries and over boundaries! Mind blowing!
It has been a pleasure to see De Villiers to bat regardless of format. It could be any- ODI, Test or T20, he is the perfect man for all. With the help of these three centuries South Africa reached to 439, the highest in all time ODI history and that also with 8 wickets in hand! Australia took 438 for nine wickets against South Africa in 2006, and then also South Africa won. Harsell Gibbs was the man at that time.
New Zealand’s Corey Anderson made the record of fastest century by hitting a ton from 36 balls last year and that was also against West Indies! What a coincident! Record of Corey Anderson has been broken by De Villers against West Indies.
Chris Gayle’s century from 30 balls in IPL is the fastest century in the history of the cricket.
AB De Villiers ended up when he was at 149 off 44 balls. Take a moment and think what a stormy innings it was!
“He said he was going to have a look for one over but hit his first six balls for 24, He is an amazing player” said Test captain Hasim Amla.
AB De Villiers hits the fastest century with 9 fours and 16 sixes equaling the record of over boundaries in an innings with Rohit Sharma.
