WATCH: AB de Villiers' fastest century in ODI history

AB de Villiers hit the fastest ever hundred in ODI history during the 2nd ODI against West Indies at Johannesburg in 2015. He scored the century in just 31 balls and broke Corey Anderson's record who scored a 36-ball hundred against West Indies in Queenstown in 2014. de Villiers came on to bat in the 39th over and by the time he got dismissed in the 4th ball of the 50th over he had piled up 149 in just 44 balls.

Here are a bunch of other records that de Villiers broke during this terrific innings:

  • Fastest fifty - in just 16 balls. The previous record was held by Sanath Jayasuriya, who scored 50 of 17 balls against Pakistan in 1996.
  • Equalled the world record for the most sixes in an ODI innings - 16. Rohit Sharma also hit 16 sixes during his innings of 209 against Australia in 2013.
  • Strike rate of 339 - Highest strike rate for a 50-plus knock and the first time that a batsman has made a 100-plus score at a 300-plus strike rate
