Nelson, NewZealand: The previous record holder Corey Anderson of the Kiwi camp had saluted AB De Villiers for his ‘hell of an innings’ against the West Indies for his 31 ball century.

De Villiers took just 31 balls to smash his way to 100 against the West Indies in Johannesburg on Sunday, five balls faster than Anderson when he set the record against the same opposition in Queenstown a year ago.

“Records are there to be broken and congratulations to AB, it was obviously a hell of an innings,” Anderson said in Nelson where New Zealand are preparing for the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka.

De Villiers went on to score 149, including 16 sixes and nine fours, from just 44 balls which impressed Anderson whose 131 not out against the West Indies came from 47 deliveries and included 14 sixes and six fours.
