AB de Villiers scores more than Windies

World Cup- 2015 20 13
It was match no. 19 of the #CWC15 between South Africa and West Indies that flooded the social media today after AB de Villiers scored the fastest 150 ever!

After South Africa’s top-order batsmen struggled against a disciplined effort by the West Indies’ seamers upfront, the sparkling explosion of fireworks from the willow of AB de Villiers and Rilee Rossouw helped them to recover and post a mammoth total on the board.

In fact, West Indies started on a good note, with Jason Holder and Jerome Taylor bowling with purpose. Both of them produced movement off the deck and Holder also extracted awkward bounce from the surface. Interestingly, they looked to cramp South Africa’s opener Quinton de Kock for room and the plan worked, with Holder snaffling the wicket of de Kock.

The experienced duo of Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis, then looked to steady South Africa’s innings. Both the batsmen had their fair share of luck, but they set a solid foundation with a century stand. It was Chris Gayle, who struck twice in a single over to send du Plessis and Amla back to the pavilion.

But just in the nick of time, de Villiers and Rossouw ripped apart the opposition ranks with their sizzling knocks. It was Rossouw, who upped the tempo by smashing a flurry of boundaries square of the wicket on either side. He reached his fifty in style by playing a forceful cut shot off Taylor over backward point for a six.

AB de Villiers took over from him to dismantle the Windies attack with a wide array of shots. Initially, de Villiers played with a full face of the bat against the seamers. In 40th over of the innings, de Villiers then gave a glimpse of his immense ability by clobbering the wily spinner Sulieman Benn for two fours and a six. He essayed a majestic shot over extra cover for a six and followed it up by going right back in the crease to play the cut shot and collect four runs. He also used the sweep shot to good effect.

The century stand between Rossouw and de Villiers came in a mere 60 deliveries. It was Andre Russell, who eventually took the wicket of Rossouw, but by then, the damage was already done. AB de Villiers though, continued to smash the Windies bowlers to shreds. He even used the scoop to thump Russell for a couple of sixes and clobbered Holder for 34 runs in the 48th over of the innings.

AB de Villiers composed his century in 52 deliveries and took just 12 more deliveries to get to his 150. His century turned out to be the second fastest in the history of the World Cup. He now holds the record for the fastest 150 in ODIs. South Africa also amassed their highest total in World Cups.

After AB de Villiers’ believe-it-or-not masterpiece with the willow helped South Africa to amass a monstrous score on the board, West Indies collapsed in a heap to lose the match by a huge margin of 257 runs. It turned out to be their heaviest defeat in terms of runs in ODIs.

South Africa’s thumping win is also the joint highest victory margin in terms of runs in World Cups. West Indies’ batsmen looked bereft of technique, especially while facing up to Imran Tahir’s box of tricks and Tahir ended up with a five-wicket haul.

Jason Holder played a rousing innings, but by then, it was all but over. The pressure of a mammoth total was seen in the way the west indies batsman adopted a callous approach which eventually led to their own downfall.


Final scoreboard

South Africa 408 for 5 in 50 overs

West indies 151 for 10 in 33.1 overs
