AB de Villiers of South Africa celebrates smashing the fastest ever one-day century off just 31 balls

January 18, 2015, South Africa vs West Indies, at Johannesburg. A match that saw many records falling.

The top three of Rilee Russow, Hashim Amla & Abraham Benjamin de Villiers scored centuries in the South African innings, making it the first ever instance of 3 individual centuries in a single ODI innings.

Meanwhile AB de Villiers helped himself to the records for the fastest ODI 50, fastest ODI 100 and equalled most sixes in an innings. Not  a bad way to bat through an innings of 44 deliveries.

Johannesburg is proving to be a record making/breaking ground. Today comes after the 434th ODI and the 231st T20 match. Wonder what’s next in store at the Wanderers.

Wonder what the likes of Michael Holding and Ian Bishop would have been thinking while commentating on their team's bowling attack.
