AB de Villiers has just smashed the fastest ODI century in the history of the game. 31 balls to get to a hundred with 10 6s and 8 4s. That is just amazing batting!!!
There is oft conjecture about who is the best player in the world and, indeed, the best batter. Frankly that conjecture is pure fiction in my view: AB de Villiers in the best cricketer in the world hands down. One only need to look at his importance to his team coupled with his record to know that.
Smith, Warner and Kholi are battling for the second prize in this race but are a long way back as today’s innings has again shown!
South Africa must be the favourites for the coming World Cup and should win it so long as de Villiers stays on the park.
