Former South African great AB de Villiers recently sat down to talk about his best batters of the game. After landing in Australia to participate in the Big Bash League (BBL), the batting genius was asked to name his favorite batsmen who either played with or against him.
Consuming a bit of time to structure his thoughts, the 35-year old picked Steve Smith from Australia, Graeme Smith from South Africa and Virat Kohli from India as his top 3 batters. AB believes that there is something special about the aforementioned cricketers as they have a habit of registering elite batting shows when pushed against the wall.
He further added that he always loved watching these batsmen bat because they were always prepared for the tough situations. It is important to note that Graeme Smith, who also led South Africa, retired from International cricket back in 2014. However, Steve Smith and Virat Kohli are often witnessed unleashing iconic batting performances to continuously swell their fan-base.
