South Africa’s star cricketer AB de Villiers has always been considered as one of the most destructive batsmen in the international arena due to his capability of playing shots all around the corner of the field.
However, ABD has always been an admirer of the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni who is a star wicketkeeper. Recently, in the series against Sri Lanka, Dhoni did his 100th stumping in 301 ODIs.
In an interview with Ring Side View, AB de Villiers talked about the little chit chat Dhoni during the World Cup 2015. He said, “I have mentioned it to people before that I should do it how he (Dhoni) does it. (He is) non-stop, doing it day-in and day out.”
He further added, “We were playing in World Cup 2015 and India beat us in Melbourne. We stood at post-match presentation and I asked him how long can he go for? How long can he do this for? He said I love every second of it (smiles). I said okay. He is one of a kind and I will always have respect for him for what he has achieved in his career.”
