South Africa’s former destructive batsman AB de Villiers has multiple records to his name in international cricket. He is one of the most devastating batsmen in world cricket to take up to the field.
He was named as the ICC ODI Player of the Year three times during his 15-year international career. His name was also featured in Wisden Cricketers of the Decade at the end of 2019. Noted as one of the most innovative and destructive batsmen in the modern era, De Villiers is known for a range of unorthodox shots, particularly behind the wicket-keeper.
He holds the record for most Test innings without registering a duck (78) by a South-African batsman. He also holds the second-highest individual score by a South African batsman in Test cricket with 278 (not out).
What portrays his explosive batting is the fact that he holds the records for the fastest 50 (16 balls), 100 (31 balls) and 150 (64 balls) of all time in One Day Internationals by any batsmen, and also holds the record of fastest hundred by a South African in Tests. Let’s have a look at the 5 batsmen who could go on to break one of his most prolific records.
5 Batsmen Who Can Break AB de Villiers’ Fastest ODI Ton Record
Although Glenn Maxwell has been away from international cricket for a long time now, he will soon be back in the Australian colours.
Maxwell is one of the most destructive batsmen in limited-overs cricket and can easily demolish any bowling attack on his day.
He has played over 100 ODIs now and is one of the most experienced campaigners currently. Although his average in ODIs is relatively low, his strike rate is absolutely mind-boggling.
Maxwell has one century to his name in the 50-overs format, which is the 2nd fastest century in ODI World Cup history and he could make a giant comeback in international cricket with the fastest ODI century.
