AB-de-Villiers

On paper, AB de Villiers looks like a super human disguised in the form of a fallible mortal, a chemical miracle by Dr X gone amazingly right. It isn’t simply about his skills, but the magnanimity to which he has managed to unleash those powers within. Aayush Puthran puts de Villiers under the microscope.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand.

How it can make them laugh and cry; how it can make them emote and enjoy the little joys of life. Read the complete article Cric Life here.
