AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla having record third-wicket partnership in World Cup, Netherlands v South Africa, World Cup 2011, Mohali, March 3, 2011
South Africa's all-round performance sealed a massive defeat to Netherlands as they lost by 231 runs which was the fourth-biggest defeat in World Cup history. Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers stand set up a giant score for Netherlands to chase, but their bowlers did not stop and in just 34.5 over, they derailed all the batting line of Netherlands. Netherlands skipper Peter Borren decided to field first after winning the toss under overcast conditions, but the things reversed against him and South Africa piled a huge target for them. Netherlands batsmen started their innings in a leading manner but Proteas seamers made them stuck after their good line & length bowling, South African spinner Imran Tahir claimed three wickets and packed the win.
AB de Villiers scored two successive centuries in the 2011 World Cup. He became the first South African to score two centuries in a single World Cup and the fifth batsman after Mark Waugh, Saeed Anwar, Rahul Dravid and Matthew Hayden to score two consecutive centuries in a single World Cup tournament. He also became the 16th batsman to score two or more centuries in one World Cup tournament. The record is three centuries in one tournament, jointly held by Mark Waugh (1996), Sourav Ganguly (2003) and Matthew Hayden (2007). AB de Villiers' strike rate of 136.73 is the highest among South African batsmen who have scored centuries in World Cup matches. The 221-run stand between de Villiers and Hashim Amla was the highest third-wicket partnership for South Africa in World Cups and the third highest for any team in the World Cup. It is also the highest partnership for the third wicket for South Africa in all ODIs. South Africa's 351 is their third-highest World Cup score and the 12th highest score for any team in World Cups. South Africa's highest World Cup score is the 356 against West Indies in the 2007 World Cup.
