AB de Villiers

Protea batsman and wicketkeeper

AB de Villiers has earned his reputation as "the golden boy of South African cricket�, having represented the Proteas in 58 consecutive test matches, batting in every place from number one to number seven, apart from the specialist number three position. Not only has he been responsible since his test debut in 2004 against England for some of the most memorable innings, he is also the Proteas' standout fielder and has kept wicket a number of times too, especially in one-day games, where he has earned 96 caps. In 2011 De Villiers became the first South African and the fifth batsman in the world to score two centuries in a single World Cup. With nine test centuries and six one-day centuries to his name and an incredible series of performances during the 2011 Cricket World Cup in India, this 27-year-old from Pretoria is well on his way to becoming a South African cricketing legend. �Lloyd Gedye
