Abraham Benjamin de Villiers (born 17 February 1984) is a South African cricketer, who captains the South African One Day International (ODI) team,[1] having succeeded Graeme Smith after the 2011 Cricket World Cup. He is also part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.[2] As of March 2014 he is ranked 1st in the ICC Test batting rankings[3] and 2nd in the ODI batting rankings.[4] The son of Dr Abraham P de Villiers, he attended Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool (Afrikaans High School for Boys, also known as Affies), a public school located in Pretoria. De Villiers is a right-handed batsman, who, in a very short space of time, has accumulated many runs in Tests including 16 centuries and 32 fifties. He still holds the record for most Test innings without registering a duck (78),[5] before being dismissed for nought against Bangladesh in November 2008. He also holds the second-highest individual score by a South African batsman in an innings, with 278*. Until 2012, he was an occasional wicket-keeper for South Africa, although since the retirement of regular Test keeper Mark Boucher and under his own ODI captaincy he has started to regularly keep wicket for the national side in Tests, ODIs and T20s. AB de Villiers scored the seventh fastest century in ODI cricket, in 58 balls, when he slammed an unbeaten 102 off just 59 balls against India in Ahmedabad in February 2010. He reached the top of the Test batting rankings in March 2012. In December 2013, de Villiers became the ninth batsman in history to simultaneously hold the top position in the ICC batting rankings in both tests and ODIs. In June 2014, he was won the SA cricketer of the year award.[6]
