South African cricketer AB de Villiers is known as one of the best batsmen in the world. No doubt, he can handle any situation on the field. He is the most entertaining batsmen in the history of the game. He has a dictionary of shots that can destroy any bowling attack in the world.
Since the arrival of T20 cricket, AB de Villiers has made many changes in his game and established himself as, arguably, the most destructive batsman. Over the years, we have seen AB destroy bowling attacks and make batting look very easy.
One of the important reasons behind ABD’s six-hitting skills is the way he keeps his head steady even while moving around the crease. AB likes moving in and around the crease to disturb bowlers’ concentration and has the ability to hit the same ball in four different directions.
A brutal 19-ball fifty is how AB de Villiers lit up the ongoing Ram Slam T20 League in South Africa on Sunday. Playing for the Titans, De Villiers showed no mercy for the bowlers and whatever came his way was hit hard. Titans captain Albie Morkel was also in the similar mood as he hit 41 off 16 balls.
And, this is why he is the most difficult batsman to bowl to in limited overs cricket. This was de Villiers’ 38th T20 fifty and his exploits helped the Titans, the defending champions in the Ram Slam Twenty20 tournament, get five points. AB de Villiers, who hasn’t played much cricket in the one year, looked in great touch as he middled everything right from the ball one.
Batting first, Lions put up 127/6 in 15 overs on the back of Reeza Hendricks’s 42-ball 67. Hendricks got little support from the rest of the side, with only Dwaine Pretorius showing some fight. Hendricks hit eight fours and two sixes as Lions reached 127/6 before rain stopped play. The umpires decided to cut short the game and asked Titans to chase down 135 in 15 overs.
