Video: AB de Villiers hits a monstrous six off Dilbar Hussain at MCG
AB de Villiers is a world-class player in the game of cricket. He has made an indelible mark on the cricket field with his batting skills. He has been an integral part of South African cricket history. He has featured in 114 Tests, 228 ODIs, and 78 T20Is for India before announcing his retirement on May 23, 2018. However, he is still playing domestic cricket.
Former South Africa cricketer is currently playing in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) for Brisbane Heat. In their must-win encounter, Brisbane Heat needed someone to play match-winning innings. It was no surprise that AB de Villiers turned out to be the star performer for his team.
‘Mr.360’ hit Stars bowling unit to every nook and corner of the cricket ecosystem and smashed a quickfire 71 with the help of 2 fours and 6 massive sixes.
AB de Villiers struck a 37-ball 71, but only one stroke off Dilbar Hussain left the Melbourne crowd in awe. The drama took place during the 18th over of the Heat innings when the AB de Villiers got deep into his crease on a full-length ball from Hussain and then launched it towards the long-on boundary for a six.
The Heat posted 186-5 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Their bowlers were at the impressive best throughout the match as James Pattinson (2/17), Mujeeb Ur Rahman (2/11) and Mitchell Swepson (3/31) helped the opposition team Stars bundle out for paltry 115 in 17.4 overs.
