When was the last time someone watched Ab de Villiers (ABD) playing Test or ODI or T20 ??
I would say it was in the shattered IPL-4 final which concluded 2 months ago.
Actually when did he represent his home team SA ??
It was 6 months ago during the 3rd semi-final qualifier match against NZ, in which the proteous were trashed by 49 runs.
ICC schedule of the year is so dumb, Indian plyers are in action throught the year while SA players have played a series against India in home and the WC away from home. Just 1 tour in a span of 10 months makes them to enjoy the cricket calender comfortably & lose the hold on their game.
After named as captain few months ago he has never played a game !! ICC has some brilliant co-ordinators.
My point here is lack of cricket has made ABD to loose his charm. He is one of the destructive batsmen of morden day cricket implied with some text book strokes. We really need his apex talent to end our trophy drought. Being captain of SA he does recognise his responsibilities in RCB.
I really dont expect more from ABD in this CLT20. A 35 ball half century or quick 25 to 35 runs & a fine work behind stumps will be a good stand.
Hope RCB wins the 1st match against Warriors tomorow and get a positive start. I am going to watch it live from CSS.
All the Best RCB !!
