It looks like that AB de Villiers loves the West Indies bowling attack to the core as on February 27th, 2015 at Sydney, he smashed the 2nd fastest hundred in World Cup and took South Africa to 408/5 in 50 overs, their highest total in World Cup history.
After electing to bat, South Africa got off to a poor start as they lost their opener Quinton de Kock for 12 on the bowling of Jason Holder caught by Andre Russell. Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis then steadied the ship with a 127-run partnership in 23 overs before Rilee Rossouw, who was picked as the replacement of the injured JP Duminy, came in and launched a counter attack. Rossouw along with skipper AB de Villiers batted with flair as the duo dispatched the West Indies bowlers all around the park and put on a 134-run partnership for the 4th wicket, the highest for South Africa in World Cup. Rossouw scored 61 off just 39 balls, before losing his wicket to Andre Russell, courtesy a flying catch by Jerome Taylor. De Villiers then plundered Jason Holder and Co. to bring up his hundred off just 51 balls, the second fastest in World Cup. He remained unbeaten on 162 off just 66 balls with 17 fours and 8 sixes. He literally singled out Holder and smashed 75 runs in his last 3 overs.
