With cricket making its comeback in South Africa with the 3TC game, the cricket maestro Ab de Villiers reminded his fans what they have been missing ever since he has hung his boots. The batsman, known for his ability to play 360 degree shots across all parts of the ground, did what he does the best – an effortless and smashing 50 off 21 balls.
de Villiers has announced a comeback and could be in action for the Proteas soon, once South Africa resume playing international cricket. He didn’t just stop at a fifty. he went ahead to score 61 in 24 deliveries.
The vintage knock helped his team, Eagles, post 160 runs in 12 allowed overs.
