AB de Villiers is the perfect blend of orthodoxy and innovation - VVS Laxman
“AB can play shots all around the wicket. He has got three or four shots for one delivery. There is nothing that he cannot do when he is batting. He is quick on his feet and in his thought process. He has executed the shots he has played not only to mediocre bowlers but also to the best in the business,” said Laxman.
Speaking on the technique used by AB de Villiers, Laxman said, "That is why he is complete. Because of his good basic technique, even on tough conditions, he can adapt quickly. To unsettle the opposition, he can play some freak shots and get his innovation into the picture and change the game single-handedly. He has the potential to play aggressively and be defensive at the same time."
AB de Villiers has played 10 matches for RCB in season 7 so far and is their top scorer at an aggregate of 315 runs and a strike rate of 158.29.
