Sydney: After the Gayle storm at Canberra against Zimbabwe, it was time for the ‘complete’ player of the world cricket to re define the meaning of batting. AB De Villiers, the South African Captain smashed a 66 ball 162 to guide the Proteas to majestic total of 408 against the Windies at SCG.
AB’s innings remained as one of the finest displays of batting in the history of world cup. The wagon wheel demonstrated the dessimation of the Caribbean bowlers all over the park. However, the Protean total could not make it to the record books as in the 2007 world cup, the Men In Blue scored a total of 413 against Namibia riding on a super knock by Yuvraj Singh. West Indies need 409 run to win against the South Africans.
