Fastest odi century

For over 17 years, Shahid Afridi of Pakistan held the record of fastest century in ODI cricket, thrashing Sri Lankans at Nairobi and reaching the milestone off just 37 balls before Corey Anderson of New Zealand made a thrilling start to year 2014, bettering the near impossible record by one ball.

And then, AB de Villiers arrived at probably the fastest scoring ground in the World.

Given a solid platform where openers had added 247 runs, AB promoted himself, hit his first ball for a four and added 11 sixes soon after, changing the record books, probably for the final time.

AB also has made hundreds off 52 balls, 58 balls and 66 balls, proving he’s the most dangerous batsman in World cricket right now.
