New Delhi: AB de Villiers celebrated his record breaking 31-ball ton at home with a home-cooked meal.

The 30-year-old thanked fans for their support as he took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share his joy after the whirlwind knock.

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.

Cricket players, past and present, continued to shower De Villiers with compliments on Twitter.
