Needless to say, AB De Villiers is one of the greatest endorsement of batting skills across formats. The stalwart batsman has staggering numbers across all formats and his skill set is higher than most of the other batsmen around the world.
His 22nd Test Century that came at Port Elizabeth yesterday was a sheer masterclass by all means and it came when his team needed it the most. While wickets kept tumbling from the other, the lone warrior held his ground and went on to score a brilliant unbeaten century.
AB De Villiers remained unbeaten on 126 from 146 balls and gave South Africa a handsome lead over the Aussies who were wrapped up for 243 in the first inning.
Given the conditions, the situation and the lethal Aussie attack, it was one of the greatest test innings that you would ever witness. We feel privileged to have been born in an era where we can see him bat live for every stroke out of his willow is a sheer delight. ABD now has 22 test centuries from 112 test matches and his aggregate in the longest format of the game now stands at a whopping 8535 runs.
