AB de Villiers optimist of scoring big innings in ICC Champions Trophy

Exuberant South African batsman AB de Villiers hopefully predicted he will come out with some big scores in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy despite his recent bad patch with the bat.

“I’m not worried, I had a few decent knocks in the IPL, I started off really well and four games later I had a decent game again” De Villiers said to Sport 24.

“I was always felt in good form. I’m not too worried about it honestly, I’m really excited to move forward, I’m hitting the ball as well as ever so I think there are some big scores to come? – he added.

De Villiers farther said, “I’m not too worried where I bat, the last while it’s been at number 4. I’m very happy to move around the order. If it suits the team that I come into bat at number 5 or no 3, I’m very happy to discuss it with Russell Domingo. It all depends on what is needed from the team.”

“I’m not a big stats man so I won’t look at what my average is wherever I’m batting” – the power hitter added.

The Proteas superstar has been running a bad form scoring only 216 runs in nine matches for Royale Challengers Bangalore in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League.

Prior to the ICC Champions Trophy in June, South Africa is going to face England in a three match ODI series beginning from May 24.
