South Africa's captain AB de Villiers during the Cricket World Cup match against the West Indies in Sydney on February 27, 2015South 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.

AFP TV grab of former employer Law Wan-tung (L) arriving at the District Court in Hong Kong on February 27, 2015A Hong Kong woman was jailed for six years on Friday for beating and starving her Indonesian maid and keeping her prisoner, as the judge called for action over laws which leave domestic workers exposed to abuse. "I'm still not satisfied with six years' imprisonment, because of what she has done to me, and to my fellow domestic workers," Sulistyaningsih told reporters. Law Wan-tung -- who had faced a maximum sentence of seven years -- "showed no compassion" to Sulistyaningsih and other domestic staff, said judge Amanda Woodcock in handing down the sentence. Law saw her staff as "people that are beneath her" said Woodcock.
