Earlier, during an interaction with Tilak Varma in the IPL 2022, Baby AB revealed how the South African batting icon has played a big role in his career so far. He had said:

Yes look, you’re always growing up idolising him, really watch him on TV or next to the field. Ya, I have met him before a few times, met him at my school, he also attended the same school. So, just to get to know him, he is such a great human being and to learn from him he gives more pieces of advice and he is really one of the best. Having him as a mentor is special to me,” 

He added: “He’s played a big role, it’s a special relationship. He teaches me small things that help me a lot. It’s about my mindset, and the way to play the game & tells me to keep it simple with thinking about the game and also with small technical things which he helps me a lot with. Playing with aggression is important but also to just keep calm in certain situations and to now see how next game goes.”

In another interview, he revealed how he was allowed to wear jersey no.17 by de Villiers. He had revealed:

“He wore the number 17 jersey. I just looked up to that. Then I asked AB if I can carry that number 17 on my back and then he said “You’re welcome”. So it’s a big honour for me to wear that jersey.”
