Is there anything on the cricket field that AB de Villiers can not do? He is one of the best batsmen in the world. He is one of the most athletic fielders EVER. He can keep wickets. And, he can bowl too.
AB de Villiers has a very easy action. His approach to the popping crease is very easy and by whatever little we got to see, it can be said that de Villiers can swing the ball.
AB de Villiers, who was playing his 170th One Day International (ODI) against New Zealand, claimed his first ever wicket in the format. Although, it wasn’t a good delivery, de Villiers showed it was no fluke by taking the second wicket later in his spell and ended up with the figures of 6-0-28-2. AB de Villiers’ dual wickets helped the Proteas beat the Black Caps by 72 runs at the Bay Oval to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. South Africa are looking very strong on paper and they have won both the matches that have been played so far.
Although it will be too early to say whether AB de Villiers can bowl regularly, it was a real joy for his fans to see him bowling and celebrate his wickets. AB de Villiers has a big fan across the world and the news of his first ODI wicket made big buzz on the social media.
