Johannesburg - South Africa beat the West Indies by 149 runs at the Wanderers on Sunday.

Proteas captain AB de Villiers scored the fastest ever ODI century and bludgeoned his way to 104 from 31 balls. He beat the previous record by five balls - held by New Zealand's Corey Anderson set in January last year, also against the West Indies.

South Africa scored 439 for two in their innings.

It was also the highest total ever for the Proteas in the format, eclipsing their 438 for nine achieved in March 2006 against Australia at the same ground.
