South African batting legend AB de Villiers is arguably the most widely adored cricketer around the world. His innovative stroke play and mastery over the art of belligerent striking has landed him a special place among fans, who are always hungry to see the master blaster in action.
AB’s astounding levels of popularity can be measured by the fact that he is certainly the most loved foreign cricketer in Indian Premier League (IPL). In fact, he was once memorably cheered on by the Indian crowd while he was representing South Africa, playing against the home side.
This moment was remembered fondly by ‘Mr. 360’ recently in a tweet where he reciprocated his fondness for his extended Indian fan base. He also declared his ambitions to continue playing IPL for as long as his health dictates him to do so.
