AB de Villiers should bat at No.4 for SA in Tests
80.88 % Defend
19.12 % Attack
“ Level-headed AB fits the bill ”
“ AB must empower his batsmen ”
Vidula Menge: Description: With the departure of Jacques Kallis followed by Graeme Smith, South Africa are now left with Hashim Amla as their only top-order mainstay in Tests. AB has been a phenomenal batsman at No.5, boasting of a 50-plus average. His knocks have time and again proved to be instrumental for the Proteas. With Faf du Plessis turning into a useful No.6 batsman, it wouldn't be a bad idea for AB to promote himself and give his team the much needed stability.

South Africa need an experienced batsman at the top, someone who can convert pressure into an opportunity to score big, without risking his wicket. The newer guys will take time to adjust and they can eventually fill the slots. AB should make the most of his ability to bat flexibly in the batting order.
Monish Moorthy: AB de Villiers is an amazing batsman, capable of batting in different positions no matter what format of the game he's playing. Tactical aggression and innovation are traits of his batting which he carries into his captaincy.

He has been a part of South Africa's rise from being competitive to being thoroughly dominating and his job will be to ensure he instills the fighting spirit and work ethic in a young team. He has to empower his players and displacing Faf du Plessis from a spot he has earned would be the opposite of that.

AB must give the youngsters a go at the top and continue to bat where he does, at 5 where he can consolidate, survive or attack as the situation demands.

his best at no. 4
19 Mar 2014
He should bat at no. 4 so that he can steer the innings as Jaques Kallis as well as Graeme Smith has retired. As a senior cricketer he should take up the responsibility of batting atno.4 and steer the team and switch gears as required .

he must should bat with balance not to hit in all balls
18 Mar 2014
When he is on the opposition team against ours, I always pray to God, "Not today!!!". Now he's on the side I support, I am happy for that. He's not a world class batsman for nothing. He has a reputation as a devastator, but flaws in his technique are pretty much straight forward. So, I hope he covers up those areas. But one thing I can't deny is that he's a team player. That's going to be an asset to the RCB dug-out.

Ab bats for RCB at 4 and makes big scores. With 2 of SA's big players retired this only leaves them with a experienced batsmen but an inexperienced middle order. They also need a batsmen who scores runs while not risking his wicket. He has this ability and he should bat at NO 4.

Ab bats for RCB at 4 and makes big scores. 2 of SA's big players have retired , so this leaves them with a strong opening batsmen but inexperienced middle order. They also need a batsmen who makes runs while not losing his wicket. He has the ability to do it so he should bat at NO.4 .
13 Mar 2014

12 Mar 2014
He fits perfectly at no.4
11 Mar 2014
yeah no:4 is best order
10 Mar 2014
Yes. Ab should bat No.4 for SA as he fits in that spot very well because if they need those quick runs he can get them easily and if they want him to stay there bat also he can do that.
10 Mar 2014
ya ab s one who can b bosst to middle
10 Mar 2014
YES HE IS BEST MIDDLE ORDER BATSMEN
10 Mar 2014

09 Mar 2014
AB de Villiers is a good attacking player and thus need to bat at No. 4 for SA so that he can put up some fast runs......
08 Mar 2014
Albie will be the best finisher for RCB.
08 Mar 2014
Ab is a good player
07 Mar 2014
I need to buy a new TShirt
07 Mar 2014
he should bat before because if he comes at no. 4 he bat for a before period and convert runs to bigger ones
07 Mar 2014
yes, he should bet higher
07 Mar 2014
He should bat @ No 5
07 Mar 2014
as he is best in building up an good inings
06 Mar 2014
He deserves the place
06 Mar 2014
Agree on the No. 4 position but keeping wicket will eventually take it's toll. Sure his batting has not suffered since he took the gloves but long term if he does bat 4 de Kock or whoever else is in the reckoning needs to be put in the squad as a wicketkeeper/batsman. Also depends on whether AB gets the captaincy from Smith now that he has retired. 3 major roles to fill if that is the case.
06 Mar 2014
he is a best African batsman and suitable for 4th place
06 Mar 2014
ya thats the best place 4 him 2 play good innings 4 his team is well ,,,so ABD must play at place 4 in tests for SA
06 Mar 2014
Yes,i definitely agree with the point.It is the place where the player has to decide how he should play so that game should go his way.The player batting at this position should have both caution and aggresion.Abrahm de viliers is the best option in world cricket.Presently,he is the finest player in all formats of cricket.He has also played few marathon innings to save the tset match for south africa.Most important thing about de villiers is his improvisation against different balling attack

AB is an excellent batsman no matters at which position he comes to crease. As he is a well known man he must go at 5th position which best suited for him.
