South African batting stalwart Hashim Amla today became the fastest player in the history of ODI cricket to reach to 17 ODI tons. He surpassed Virat Kohli, who did the same in 112 innings. Virat Kohli also achieved a similar record recently when he became fastest to 21 ODI tons.

Amla scored 102 in the 3rd ODI of the five match series against Australia and achieved this feat. 

Clearly looks like Virat Kohli will have to brace himself up to see some of his records get broken in the coming years!
