The elegant Indian opener, Rohit Sharma has been one of the luckiest cricketers to have got the opportunity to play with some of the best players in the history of the game. He shared the dressing room with the likes of some stalwarts like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid, Virat Kohli, and several others. However, it looks like none of them has fascinated him like AB de Villiers.

Recently, while answering one of the questions of his fans in Twitter Sharma revealed his choice as his favorite cricketer to watch. The fan asked, “Whom are your favorite players you delight to watch? Current generation? @ImRo45”

Replying to the tweet, Rohit said: “AB de Villiers”.

De Villiers retired from international cricket last year He will always be considered as one of the finest ever batsmen in the history of the game. No matter what the format was or what the conditions were, he rarely failed. If his traditional stroke-play made the traditionalists drool then his scarcely-believable wide array of unorthodox shots left this generation gasping for breath,

ABD amassed as many as 20,014 international runs (8765 in Tests, 9577 in ODIs and 1672 in T20Is). He also finished his career with a batting average over 50 in both Tests, and ODIs. He also holds the record for the fastest 50, fastest 100 and fastest 150 in ODIs, all coming against the Windies. He smashed a 31-ball century in Johannesburg in 2015 and hit a 66-ball 162 in the 2015 World Cup encounter in Sydney.
