D Villiers fastest 100 record is breakable: Anderson

NELSON: Corey Anderson praised AB de Villiers for a marvelous innings after the South African broke the New Zealander’s record for the fastest century in a one-day international.

De Villiers took just 31 balls to hit 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.

Anderson commented in Nelson where New Zealand are preparing for the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka  on the fastest 50 and 100 by AB de Villiers “Records are there to be broken and congratulations to AB, it was obviously a hell of an innings.”

 De Villiers had scored 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.

The Kivi batsman said that getting 149 of 44 by the South African player was more special.

Anderson believes that the new record is breakable.

No any record is impossible, said Anderson adding that the World Cup is coming up around the corner, so it could be a good chance for someone else to take it down.
