Happiest birthday, Absolutely Brillant de Villiers.
Nobody has ever graced 22 yards as beautifully and brilliantly as you have.
It's been nine months, i still haven't got used to the sight of AB de Villiers not walking in when proteas are two down. Life for many of us watching you play in green and gold jersey only in highlights is not the same, Abbas. I was so excited about MSL and BPL as you were stepping on the field again. You were the same old AB; scooping the same unimaginable big hits, reverse sweeps, switch hits. But watching you play was bitter-sweet this time as one question constantly kept popping, "What made you...?"
Just keep playing, whatever it is, whichever league it is, I will be right in front of screen cheering for you. The joy of watching you own the field is unparalleled.
You are the closest any human can get to being a superman. Thank you for blessing this game of cricket with your inhuman brilliance and also for being a wonderful person that you are. You mean so much to me and to cricket.
@abdevilliers17, i love you. Always. ❤
