AB De Villiers has been one of the greatest ambassadors of South African cricket. His contributions to the world of cricket and how he has entertained cricket lovers with his skills remains unmatched. After an illustrious test career, Mr 360 Degrees is finally hanging his boots in the longest format of the game.
It’s being largely speculated that the test at Johannesburg against Australia would be his last career’s last last test appearance. It was only recent that Morne Morkel announced his retirement after the ongoing series with Australia concludes.
During a broadcast, fellow countryman and commentator revealed that
“This could be the last series for AB de Villiers,”
AB De Villiers’ stats in the longest format of the game are just remarkable. In 111 test matches so far, ABD has 8409 runs to his name which is stupendous achievement. In his numbers in the longest format of the game, AB De Villiers has 21 centuries and 43 half centuries to his tally.
One Of The Greatest Entertainers Ever: ABD
He’s a living legend and he’s been the premier entertainer for fans over these years. He made his test debut against England in 2004 and since then it’s been an utter pleasure to watch him bat.
If these reports are true and he’s indeed bidding farewell to test cricket, he’ll make a lot of fans weep as this legend has always been one of its own kind. We’d miss seeing you whites ABD!
