24th May 2016 was the day when god himself descended on earth to play cricket. The god of course did not come from heavens above. A.B. de Villiers is not a lesser soul as far as cricket is concerned.
Navjot Singh Sidhu summed it quite right in the Extra Innings. Whenever after say 300 years a book would be written about top cricketers of today AB’s name would feature on the first page. Nicknamed ABD by the cricketing world he is a master craftsman with the willow. Playing a reverse sweep to the fastest of bowlers needs courage apart from loads of skill. His calm mind is an icing on the cake. The way he took out Royal Challengers Bangalore from the jaws of defeat against Gujarat Lions speaks volumes about him. Bowlers sometimes look hapless when they bowl to the greatest batsman cricket has ever produced.Hits : 2017
