We Thank you for the Last 14 years. You have been an Incredible Player.
As an RCB Fan, I have loved you to Mars and Back. Yes, you have never laid us down.
If there is any Foreign player that every Indian is a Fan Of, then it has to be Only You.
Your service to South African Cricket is truly Loyal. The way you stood by your team, even at its lowest is what makes you Special.
As a Batsmen, you never went beyond records. You have batted at every possible position, from opening the innings to finishing the game at no. 6.
You were Awesome as a Wicketkeeper. You did your Job whenever you were required to.
You even Bowled and proved that you were a Complete Cricketer.
My Father said there was Jonty Rhodes. Now, I can proudly say to my kids that there was AB De Villiers who used to do Magic on the field.
Who Could Have Hit those Reverse sweeps, that too for Yorkers? You really have to prove that You Are not an Alien.
How Could We Forget That Brilliant Fastest ODI Century of yours? That match is still there in our eyes.
South Africa could have won a World Cup for you. That emotional moment when you shed tears after losing a Semifinal to NZ. We all cried with you.
You were a complete sportsman and World will remember you as the Greatest Cricketer.
Beyond everything, you will be remembered for your sportsmanship and a true gentlemen attitude.
Thank you ABDV. There will never be another like you.
