Swashbuckling batsman AB de Villiers smashed 50 runs off just 19 balls helping his side Titans open their account with an eight-wicket win over Lions in the ongoing Ram Slam T20 Challenge in South Africa.
After winning the toss, the Lions elected to bat first and posted a total of 127 in a rain-shortened 15-over game. Reeza Hendricks, 67 off 42 balls was the top scorer of the innings.
However, the Titans were quick to scale the chase as De Villiers blitzed through the innings after an early contribution from Quinton de Kock where he scored 39 off 24 balls. Mr. 360° along with skipper Albie Morkel built a 3rd wicket partnership of 50 runs off 22 balls.
During ABD’s blitzkrieg was one of the unorthodox shot off Kagiso Rabada that oozed brilliance. It was the 12th over of 2nd innings and the first ball of Rabada’s over, when De Villiers unleashed a six and followed it up with a special scoop off the full-length delivery over fine leg.
