I feel like I’m in the best form of my life: AB

South Africa batsman AB de Villiers believes he is in the best form of his life as South Africa push for a three-nil Test series whitewash over India. The stylish batsman had some important contributions in both the Test matches.

AB in the press conference: I feel like I am in the best form of my life right now. Once again, I have touched on it earlier, that I am never guaranteed results, never guaranteed five hundreds in a row. I could get five ducks in a row but I am happy where I am at. And I am playing well and I am doing my preparation well and I am meeting the ball well, it is just upto the day to take care of itself. So I don’t think like that and I feel at the best phase of my life right now.”

“It feels like my debut back in 2004 when I started as an opening batsman then a keeper at no.7 and back to opening, and up and down. It’s funny with my comeback now similar to back in the day. But it has been very enjoyable, I feel very fresh, and I have said it on numerous occasions in the last few months that I just feel like just getting out there and playing, and that’s what a good break does to you.”

He added: “I am feeling in a good space and the energy is good and my body is feeling right at the moment. I do have niggles but that is part of Test cricket. You never get up feeling a hundred percent. The back is still there, the ankles and knees, everything is hurting at times but to be playing the ultimate form of the game again, it has been a great challenge.”

South Africa will play the third and the last Test match against India on 24th January at Johannesburg. 1 of 1
