South Africa batsman AB de Villiers has scored the fastest-ever one-day international century during South Africa’s run-laden innings against the West Indies on Sunday.

The number three needed 31 deliveries to reach the milestone in the second ODI in Johannesburg, five fewer than previous record holder Corey Anderson, who needed 36 balls to reach the milestone against the West Indies last year.

De Villiers had earlier broken Sanath Jayasuriya’s 19-year record for the fastest ODI fifty, taking a mere 16 deliveries to achieve the feat by launching Jason Holder over the long-off boundary.
