In the game of cricket, when any pressure increases on any player, its sweat becomes exhausted. Under this pressure, the player gives his team victory by performing the best, and sometimes disintegrates the problems of his team. With this pressure, every player has to be two-four, one such situation comes in front of AB de Villiers, one of the world’s most dangerous batsmen. The incident took place on the third day of the Second Test i.e. on March 11, 2018, against Australia in Port Elizabeth i.e In the first innings of this Test match against Australia, De Villiers scored an unbeaten 126 in the first innings and gave his team an edge.
After three years in white clothing cricket, this opportunity came when De Villiers’ bat struck a century. Earlier, he played 148 against West Indies in January 2015. After having not scored a century for the last three years, questions were raised about his ability too. He also played an 80-run innings against India, but he could not convert it into century. Against Australia, he did not let the spot go and he made the 22nd century of his Test career.
After the third day’s game ended, De Villiers told that when he was in the nervous knees, his feet were trembling and he was nervous. De Villiers told that he had told his fellow player Philander in a conversation that he was struggling to breathe and that his feet were really numb. With this, he said that this century has a great deal of meaning for him.
De Villiers said that he had been reminding himself since coming to Nervous Nunitz that, think about his contribution to the team not about his century. With this, De Villiers said that it was difficult to forget that you have not made any century for the last 3 years. That is why this century has special significance for me.
