Cape Town - He has achieved just about everything there is to achieve in cricket, but, on Monday, AB de Villiers reached a new milestone when he captained the Proteas for the 100th time in One Day Internationals (ODIs).


De Villiers joins Graeme Smith (150) and Hansie Cronje (138) as the only South Africans to have captained in 100 ODIs or more. 

Next on the list is Shaun Pollock (98), while you have to go as far down as Kepler Wessels (52) to find the next most experienced ODI skipper for the Proteas. 

In terms of win percentage, Cronje leads the way with 73.7%, followed by Smith (64.2%), Pollock (64.06) and De Villiers (60.52%). 

Wessels, meanwhile, won just 40% of his matches in charge.
