The South African Superman once again stamped his authority over the ODI format with a breathtaking century against Bangladesh in October this year.AB de Villiers then joined Hashim Amla at the crease to forge a formidable partnership of 136 runs. Thanks to Amla’s calming influence at the other end, AB, as he is fondly called, played a superlative innings. He pummelled the Bangladesh bowlers with some hard-hitting strokes en route to his 25th ODI century.
The former skipper, after reaching his 100 in just 68 balls, seemed unstoppable as he went berserk. All the bowlers were treated with disdain as de Villiers ended up with a career-best 176 off 104 balls that comprised 15 fours and 7 sixes.
