In the opening match of the ongoing Mzansi Super League (MSL), Tshwane Spartans captain AB de Villiers scored 59 runs off 30 deliveries, including three fours and five sixes. He was right on the money straightaway wreaking havoc on the Cape Town Blitz bowlers.
In the 11th over of second innings, ABD decided to unsettle the left-arm spinner who dismissed Dean Elgar on the second ball of his first over. On the fourth ball, Mr. 360 struck a six while playing a switch-hit over square of the wicket. It looked like a proper slog sweep shot from a left-handed batsman as the ball traveled a long distance, not just crossing the boundary but going straight into the crowd.
Despite De Villiers’ heroics, the match ended in favour of Blitz as Spartans failed to chase down a target of 181 runs.
