Top Five Batsmen With Most Centuries in World Cup History:
#5 AB De Villiers:
The former South African batsman has been regarded as one of the most versatile batsmen in all formats of cricket. Termed as the knight of the team, Villiers has smashed almost every bowler on every ground for his team. In an innings against hapless West Indies, he rammed the Caribbean bowlers with his 162 off just 66 balls. He drove the ball across the boundary nine times, while the ball went over the boundary ropes 16 times.
It isn’t just this, he also holds the fifth position for hitting most centuries in World Cup history. With a strike rate of 117.29 in 23 matches, Villiers had made four centuries and six half-centuries at an average of 63.52.
