There’s only one player on the planet who can hit any ball in any direction of the ground and is popularly known as Mr. 360 for his 360° striking ability. He’s none other than the one and only AB de Villiers.
Certainly, you get to see such magicians in the game maybe once in a century and we are lucky to have witnessed the batting of de Villiers. He’s a man with absolutely no hatters as everyone loves to watch him bat.
Not only he’s a great batsman but also an excellent wicket-keeper, an athletic fielder, and a very competitive captain. He turned emotional when under his leadership protease crashed out of the World Cup in 2015 and it was a sad moment for every cricket fan to see their hero in tears.
He has played unbelievable innings in tests, ODIs, and T20s. He can bat as slow as 23 from 240 balls in test cricket to as fast as 150 from 49 balls in ODIs, such is his adaptability of the game.
Recently in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, he played a blistering inning of 73 from 33 balls which made the difference in the game and Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match comfortably.
His form has been consistent for RCB this season and he has performed pretty well this season. RCB will hope his form continues as they look to go big this season.
What Shastri said?
Ravi Shastri tweeted after the match, that what he witnessed in AB de Villiers innings was unreal and amazing and he requested de Villiers to come out of retirement back into the international arena as the game misses him.
