Malinga to de Villiers, SIX, smash! sensational way to bring up your hundred, take a bow AB! his 12th ODI century, Malinga is one of the finest limited-overs bowlers around, de villiers doesn't care, slams that over midwicket, a clean strike sends that into the crowd

48.5

Perera to de Villiers, SIX, utterly stunning batting from AB, he's hardly on the pitch when he plays this shot, it was full and several feet outside off, AB has somehow managed to get even wider than that delivery and then scoops it for six over fine leg, toying with the bowling here, falls over as he plays that but he still connects well enough, awesome!

South Africa 295/4   AB de Villiers 113* (93b 9x4 3x6)   NLTC Perera 6.5-0-58-0
48.6

Perera to de Villiers, SIX, and just to show that it was no fluke, he does it again! can't blame the bowler when he comes up against batting like this, South Africa's 300 is up

South Africa 301/4   AB de Villiers 119* (94b 9x4 4x6)   NLTC Perera 7-0-64-0
