South African batsman on Sunday scored the fastest hundred in the history of ODI cricket. De Villiers' century came up in just 31 balls against the West Indies in the 2nd ODI at Johannesburg.
The Proteas skipper's century, that included 8 boundaries and 10 sixes, shattered the previous record of New Zealand batsman Corey Anderson who scored a hundred off 36 balls against West Indies last year.
AB's missus was 'ecstatic' after witnessing the wonder at Wanderers, which is why she probably treated her tired husband with a home-cooked meal on returning home.
What an incredibly special moment!Proud is an understatement I'm ECSTATIC! My heart's gonna explode! So trots op jou my lief@ABdeVilliers17
