Cricket Fever is all around! ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 has been full of excitement so far. We have seen some great innings from The hard hitter of the cricket ball 'Chris Gayle' and not to forget, the South African Gem 'AB De Villiers'. Chris Gayle has scored 215 runs against the Minnows Zimbabwe. Though he started his innings in an unimpressive way, but Zimbabwe bowlers were so determined to bring back the lost form of the West Indian giant hitter that they dropped a few chances as well. But, Gayle was extremely thankful for those dropped catches, as he hit Zimbabwean bowlers all over the ground. We all know that Gayle don't like to move on the pitch. He likes to stay in the crease and use his sheer power to clear ball off the boundaries. But, I still put the innings played by Chris Gayle at the 2nd spot, because it came against the weaker opponents 'Zimbabwe'.
The innings played by AB De Villiers was more astounding and illustrious than the Gayle's. What AB De Villers did was continued the bashing of the West Indian bowling from the innings that he played in South Africa. He broke several records in that bilateral series and in the innings played in the World Cup match was no different. Let me just write down the name of the opponent here. AB played his innings against the West Indies. Yes, West Indies was at the receiving end this time around. AB De Villiers smashed the cricket ball all around the ground. He now holds the record for the fastest fifty, hundred and one-fifty runs.
Well, if you think that this world cup is all about vicious beating of the bowlers, then you are wrong. Bowlers have also done great in this world. Who could forget the match between England Vs New Zealand, where Tim Southee simply demolished the batting of the English team. He took seven important wickets and just conceded 33 runs. In the same match, Brendon McCullum played thunderous innings and made 77 runs off just 25 balls, in which he has scored the fastest fifty in any World Cup so far. Simply put, this world cup will be known as the 'World Cup of Records'. So, stay tuned and watch this spectacular cricket fest.
