There are hitters, there are sloggers, there are finishers and then there is AB de Villiers. His amazing capability to come up with different shots for every possible delivery makes him the most destructive batsman of modern day cricket. For many batsman, scoop is the option to break free. But AB de Villiers plays scoops and reverse-scoops for fun. He makes it look so normal as if he was going for the forward defense.
AB de Villiers is a fearless batsman. He doesn’t care too much guarding his stumps or taking some time to settle down initially. With his amazing skills and extraordinary talent, AB de Villiers has destroyed many great bowlers in the world. He didn’t even spare his Proteas teammate Dale Steyn, when he decided to go after him in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
