South Africa captain AB de Villiers smashed the second fastest century in World Cup history, leading his side to a huge 408-5 against the West Indies at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday. De Villiers finished on an unbeaten 162 off just 66 balls as South Africa raced to the second highest World Cup total, behind only the 413-5 made by India against Bermuda, a non-Test nation, in Trinidad in 2007. De Villiers destroyed the West Indians with eight sixes and 17 fours and was particularly savage on his counterpart Jason Holder, clouting four sixes off the pace bowler's final over. The fastest ever World Cup century was made by Ireland's Kevin O'Brien, off 50 balls, against England in Bangalore during the 2011 tournament.
