"Very Cool" - AB de Villiers responds to an amazing video of him, created by his fan, batting left-handed.
AB de Villiers is arguably one of the best strikers of the cricket ball that the game has seen. He is the best in the business when it comes to playing to all parts of the ground. That is the reason he is widely known as "Mr. 360". He is a rare talent who can change the situation of the game in a span of a few overs.
That is one of the prime reasons that he is followed by fans from all over the world. De Villiers is one of the few batters with a 50+ average in both ODIs and Tests, and his T20I strike rate is well over 135.
On top of that, his performances in the Indian Premier League make him the legend of the world's biggest cricket league. He has scored 5162 runs in 184 matches in the IPL at an incredible strike rate of 151.69. He has also won many matches for his team at both international and IPL levels.
However, the former South African skipper announced his retirement from international cricket in 2018 and a big adieu from all forms of cricket last year in 2021. But because of his stature, an RCB fan asked him to reconsider his decision and play for Bangalore in the IPL, ahead of the 2022 season.
Fans still want to see the 38-year-old play cricket, especially in the IPL. Without a doubt, he is one of the most likeable personalities in India. Notably, for the last couple of days, on Twitter, fans have been posting a compilation of their favourite players batting from opposite angles, which is getting viral.
Regarding that, a fan also posted a video of AB de Villiers batting left-handed, which went viral earlier this week. The video got so viral that the legend himself took notice of the video and responded to the tweet.
