De Villiers’ unmatched career
AB de Villiers said goodbye to international cricket in the year 2018. De Villiers played 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 matches. In international cricket, he scored 47 centuries with his bat. De Villiers may have said goodbye to international cricket 3 years ago but he still shows his strength in the IPL. In IPL 2021, de Villiers scored 207 runs in 6 innings at an average of 51.75. By the way, South Africa also needed de Villiers because this team has become very weak now and it seems difficult to win against teams like India-England.
