AB De Villiers Hangs Up His Helmet


As AB De Villiers calls time on his career, Mr.360, as he is lovingly known, has provided us with moments of absolute magic. Here’s why ABD will be forever immortal in the memory of all cricket lovers.

1. Katich fails to see the magic – 2006
In 2006, AB De Villiers was hanging not too far from Simon Katich on the field of play. When the ball came to him, De Villiers proceeded to pull off a run out that astounded people so much, most of them had to see it four or five times. We still have it on loop.

3. Earning the moniker of Mr.360
Famous for putting the opposition bowling under pressure, AB De Villiers also had an astounding ability to absorb the pressure. Of all his innings, the true brilliance was to score merely 30 to 50 runs in over 200 deliveries and earn South Africa results in unsalvageable situations.

4. Kallis a partner in crime – 2010
Alongside the ageless Jacques Kallis at the crease, AB De Villiers put on a stand for the 5th wicket and scored a hundred in under two hours in the Test Match. Once Jacques Kallis reached his first-ever double ton, Greame Smith promptly declared – South Africa now with a mammoth lead of 484 runs.

‘Dum Maaro Dum’
