Who holds the record for scoring fastest 150 in an ODI match? Read details

By the time AB de Villiers marked his fastest One Day International 150, the world was aware about the storm named ABD. Fondly known as Mr. 360, de Villiers played the knock of the fastest 150 on February 27, 2015 against West Indies and knocked down the previous record, Shane Watson’s 150 off 83 balls against Bangladesh.

It was a World Cup match and South Africa had a sluggish start and were wobbling at 87/1 after 20 overs. As the start can be greatly phrased as the calm before the storm. His 162 not out helped South Africa to post 408, the second-highest total in the World Cup. The innings noted 17 fours and eight sixes. He scored 73 runs in the last five overs. In response WI were bundled out for 151 as Imran Tahir’s five-for tottered the side.

Just one month before this record, ABD had racked up the fastest 50 and 100 against the Windies in Johannesburg.

Recently ICC picked up the ace South African cricketer in both their ODI and T20 Teams of the Decade.
