AB de Villiers

AB de Villiers returns with another record breaking stint

1st T20: South Africa v Pakistan

Internet Desk: The cricket fanatics knows him as Mr. 360* for his various shot playing capabilities, though his original name is AB de Villiers. AB has created another record which might not be broken anytime soon. After playing a gem of a knock of 176 runs he became the only Proteas batsman to score eight out of 10 fastest hundreds in ODIs. Today in a match against Bangladesh he smashed a ton in just 68 deliveries.

Except AB, the other batsmen who belongs to this list are Mark Boucher, who has ton in 44 deliveries in 2006 and David Miller who has a ton in just 69 balls against the Aussies back in 2016.

de Villiers came into bat at a time when South Africa were in trouble at 90/2. He shared a 136-run partnership with opening batsman Hashim Amla. Though Amla departed for 85, ABD finished on 176 runs. Also this is his highest score in an ODI.

Here is the full-list of the ten fastest tons for South Africa in ODIs:
