SYDNEY (AP) AB de Villiers scored the second-fastest century ever in a World Cup in a display of brutal hitting Friday, setting South Africa on course for a record-equaling 257-run win over West Indies.

De Villiers made an unbeaten 162 off 66 balls, with 17 boundaries and eight sixes, as he dismantled the West Indies' attack and pushed South Africa to 408-5 - the second-highest total ever at the World Cup.

The South Africa skipper reached his century off 52 balls and continued to dominate, helping his team add 80 runs in the last 3.2 overs of its innings.
