AB De Villiers

The truth behind AB De Villiers’ childhood

Spread the love

There’s a chance you might have heard about AB De Villiers playing a variety of sports in his childhood ranging from hockey to rugby, badminton to football, etc. His flexibility in batting and fielding has earned him the tag of Mr. 360. You must have been reading the news of him being the captain of various junior teams, or an important player of those junior teams. But the truth is out, and all those news of AB De Villiers playing various sports for his country are false.

Yes, they are false!

And you don’t need to trust me on this. This was revealed by AB De Villiers himself in his autobiography titled “AB: The Autobiography”.

The excerpt from his book is as follows:

“I played hockey for one year at high school … but I was never shortlisted for the national hockey squad, or ever came remotely close to that level,”. “I have never played any organized football (soccer). We used to kick a ball around during break at school and the game has become part of the Proteas’ warm-up routine. That is all. “I never represented South Africa (in rugby) at any level … and was never captain.

 “I never played badminton at school. If my memory is correct, I have only ever played one game of badminton in my entire life, and that was just a fun game with (former South Africa wicketkeeper) Mark Boucher. “I did get my official handicap down to a respectable one when I was 15 but there’s not much time to play golf these days and my handicap has drifted to nine.”

“These are the facts: decent at golf, useful at rugby and tennis when I was young, and enjoying cricket ever since.”

And he also did not win any Science medal from Nelson Mandela.                                                               So now you know, don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.
