- Fastest AB De Villiers Records
- Hundred & Half-Century ODI Fastest vs. West Indies
The world records with the fastest fifty and fastest century for ODI International belongs to ABD. In 2015, he recorded this record against the West Indies in Johannesburg.
The West Indies team was devastated by the devastating batting of De Villiers as they toured South Africa. In 50 overs, Proteas recorded a big score of 439 runs for two wickets. AB recorded a pair of remarkable records in the same match.
Captain Jason Holder of the West Indies won the toss in that match and challenged the South African side to bat first. As HashimAmla and RileeRossouw took the class of the West Indies team’s bowlers with an opening partnership of 247 runs, the hosts made a magnificent start. Rossouw was out of the innings on the third ball of the 39th, and then AB de Villiers joined the ground.
In just 19 minutes, AB broke the world record for the fastest fifty out of 16 balls. For this record, he landed three fours and five sixes. And today, his record remains unchanged.
In just 40 minutes, AB then went on to hit the world’s fastest century from 31 balls. For this song, he planted eight fours and ten skyscrapers. AB’s record was not surpassed until today.
After him, Corey Anderson of New Zealand, who scored 36 balls for a century in 2014, is second.
Mr. 360 was almost similar to the world record of 16 sixes in an innings by Rohit Sharma. The document, however, is now named after England’s veteran Eoin Morgan (17 sixes).
