AB de Villiers

AB DE VILLIERS is one of the finest batsmen ever to play cricket, and yet his achievement extends beyond his outrageous armoury of drives, pulls, paddles, scoops and flicks.
Whether he is delighting home crowds at the Wanderers or Newlands or setting new records in Bengaluru or Sydney, he plays the game in a whole-hearted manner that projects a positive image of his country around the world and also makes millions of South Africans feel good about themselves.

The statistics tell barely half the story but, so far, AB DE VILLIERS has scored 8 000 runs in 98 Tests for South Africa, 8 000 runs in 190 one-day internationals and more than 40 000 runs in his professional career. He is mainly distinguished by the style in which he bats and his humble, determined captaincy of the South African national team in one-day international cricket.
