AB De Villiers, widely regarded as one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket, turns 33 today. Also known as modern-day cricket’s Superman, the stylish right-hander is regarded as one of South Africa’s best batsman ever and he has proved it by holding many batting records in international cricket.
He is called Mr. 360° because of his ability to hit the ball over the boundary anywhere in the field. May it be hitting a monstrous six over behind the square or over the third man, he has done it all.
The Superman of Cricket holds the record for fastest 50 (16 balls), 100 (31 balls) and 150 (64 balls) in an ODI. He has also hit the most number of sixes in an ODI innings (16 sixes) and he is also the fastest player to reach 8000 ODI runs.
Apart from his terrific batting performances, AB is also a live wire on the field.
This incredible run-out by him against Australia is completely etched in every cricket fan’s mind.
Having missed international cricket due to his struggle with injuries lately, de Villiers was back in South Africa’s limited-overs squad for the series against Sri Lanka. Since his return, he has already hit three fifties.
