  1. AB is an amazing team player.Love the fact that he always backa up hes team mates.He is a super awesome role model for kids as well.

  2. He’s my inspiration and one of the reasons I watch cricket. He has talent, class, and impeccable shot making skills that will surely put him in the history books as one of the world’s greatest/most destructive batsmen. Not only that, his off-field persona is charismatic and friendly, which makes him a great role model for all aspiring cricketers.

  3. AB de Villiers is one of the “old school” sportsmen in the sense of true sportsmanship. He keeps the standards high, he stays true to his team and he encourages them even when the public isn’t supporting ”their” team. He is an extraordinary batsman, superb fielder and an excellent wicket-keeper.

    Not to mention his leadership skills, like his trust in his fellow team mates eg. Quinton de Kock who has just proven to be on point. The passion that he exudes on the field does not only encourage his team members but is also an inspiration to our nation.

  4. What makes AB a cut above the rest is not only his amazing ability to play any sport and be really good at it, but also how he leads his team from the front and when we lose he is the first to fall on his sword. It’s quite clear from the body language shown by our players that they too believe in his leadership and when a team gels like that there’s no stoping them Just an amazing player.

  5. Brilliant all round cricketer. He has the ability to completely turn a game around (even bowling!) and can put the game put of reach for any opposition in the blink of an eye. As captain, he leads by example and takes the responsibility for tough decisions that need to be made. A living legend.

  6. A – AWESOME ALL ROUNDER

    THATS AB OUR HERO OUR CAPTAIN!!

  7. Because, quite simply he’s a legend on and off-field. Personally, I’ve modelled my game on his and he inspires me every day to strive for perfection. He’s an unconventional batsman/captain and that’s what makes him so great. I won’t be wrong if I say that he’s THE BEST CRICKETER EVER PRODUCED IN SOUTH AFRICA(maybe even better than Kallis)

  8. AB de Villiers is the best batsman in world cricket, he can keep wickets and field like no one else can. AB de Villiers is a superstar on the field, there’s no other batsmen that can do what he does once he gets going.

  9. AB De Villiers , where do I begin , not only is he the best cricket player in the world , he is a world wide role model to the whole world he has everyones respect and support

    He stole the hearts of everyone – his passion for his country and sport is awesome

    AB De Villiers is a great captain , sportsman , role model and loving person

    I look up to this very talented guy and proud to call him my Proteas Captain

  10. a player who wears his heart on his sleeve, he always gives his 110% when playing; “sore hearts” after they lost to New Zealand in the semi-final of the Cricket World Cup. but he never gave up and thats what we all should do if things does not go our way we must give up we strive to be better and do better

  11. AB doesnt play for himself. He plays for his team, he plays for you, he plays for me, he plays for his country. in fact, AB plays for everyone that loves cricket, that’s why AB is the most loved cricketer the world over. If I had to pick someone to bat for my life, i’d pick AB to bat for me. We love you AB!

  12. Hi AB! My mom and I had cricket fever yesterday! I couldn’t go to school! I watched every ball bowled and batted and cheered our team on! I thought your decision to bat first was a great decision! I would love to play on a team with a captain like you, you were cheering on the guys from the beginning to the end. I told my mom it could have gone either way. I know what its like to drop a ball at a crucial moment. Its hard. You are an awesome Captain, with an awesome team! – Jesse Jacobsen Crane (age 11 – brilliant fast bowler).

  13. Because he’s extremely patriotic(you could see it in his eyes yesterday) and because he’s a great person too. One of the best batsmen in the world!

  14. True inspiration to both young and old. Led the team by example throughout this World Cup Tournament. Honoured to witness and appreciate the legend that is AB DeVilliers

  15. A B De Villiers is probably the most passionate captain that we have ever had!!!
    He is selfless when he bats and really is the base of the #ProteaFire!!!

  16. AB is such an amazing player. He can destroy a team but stay humble and calm through the process. Love everything about his technique and the way he plays this amazing game. Keep it up Captain <3

  17. Unfortunately I don’t have twitter to follow you guys, but I want to say this. AB De Villiers is one AMAZING captain and sportsman.
    What I admire most about him is his pure talent and his love for the game. He has a lot of talent and deserve to wear the green and gold.
    I’m proud of you AB, you inspire me. You are what cricket is all about talent, sportsmanship and love.

  18. AB IS BEST AT EVERYTHING FROM BATTING, BOWLING,FIELDING…EVERYTHING… THE WAY HE PLAYS HIS SHOTS ARE SUPERB…WHETHER HE PLAYS A HOOK…OR A CHICKY SHITS ALL GO FOR BOUNDARY

  19. AB IS BEST AT EVERYTHING FROM BATTING, BOWLING,FIELDING…EVERYTHING… THE WAY HE PLAYS HIS SHOTS ARE SUPERB…WHETHER HE PLAYS A HOOK…OR A CHICKY SHOTS ALL GO FOR BOUNDARY…
    FANTASTIC PLAYER…

  20. I admire AB’s confident and his calm posture at all times even when the pressure is building. He truly is a gentleman and a great leader. Here’s hoping that my Captain will raise the World Cup 2019 #ProteaFire

  21. De Villiers is a talented sportsman. One of the best batsman. He has a reputation as an outstanding fielder, typified by a diving run-out of Simon Katich of Australia in 2006, when he dived to stop the ball, and while still lying on his stomach facing away from the stumps, he tossed the ball backwards over his shoulder and effected a direct hit. This has also led people to make further comparisons of him to Jonty Rhodes as he was also one of the finest fielders of his generation. In 2009 he was nominated as ICC Cricketer of the year and ICC Test Player of the year. I have tweeted @rehanaseedat and shared post via facebook

  22. My son 7 years old absolutely adores AB he is his hero and motivates him to play cricket. He was never much into sports but since he discovered ab it’s all he wants to do.

  23. ABD !! We all know this guy is genius, but what makes him special is when he gets the die hard Indian fan in me rooting for sa and #proteafire this World Cup. The passion, the spirit with which he led team South Africa this World Cup is much appreciable. I never thought I’d adore a cricketer so much after the retiring of Sachin Tendulkar. But here he is. True champion. Beyond measure, Beyond words. Absolute legend.

  24. Because he’s the most original batsman in the world and the most destructive too. He’s an amazing fielder and a true gentlemen off field too.

  25. Because he’s an outstanding batsman but most importantly, he’s humble and grounded. A asset to every team.
