He revolutionized cricket by inventing new types of shots that other players could only imagine. He earned the nickname “Mr.360” due to his remarkable ability to play a wide range of shots effortlessly all over the field.
De Villiers made a significant contribution to both international and domestic cricket and has amassed a large following of devoted fans worldwide. Notably, he is one of the few players with no detractors.
The veteran cricketer announced his retirement from all forms of the game in the previous year, having last played in the fourteenth edition of the IPL. Despite his retirement, AB de Villiers remains an icon in the world of cricket.
During the previous season of the IPL, the RCB franchise had to play without the services of AB de Villiers as he had retired from all forms of the game following the 14th edition of the tournament.
