WATCH: Crowd chants “AB! AB!” as AB de Villiers smashes a 50-ball century in Bangladesh Premier League

Posted On

Former South Africa international AB de Villiers lit up the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram with a quick fire 50-ball century in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

This century marked the fourth in ABD’s prolific domestic Twenty20 career, which also includes stints with the Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The hard-hitting right-hander represented the Tshwane Spartans in the inaugural Mzansi Super League (MSL) in late 2018. He will also play for the Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) later this year.

Playing for Rangpur Riders against Dhaka Dynamites, De Villiers took 24 balls to reach his half-century, and another 26 to reach three figures in a chanceless effort, all while the Chattogram crowd chanted “AB! AB!”
