Former South Africa international AB de Villiers is one of the most-loved cricketers in the world. He is also one of the key players in the Virat Kohli-led franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
De Villiers has many devoted followers in India who are die-hard fans of his batting. But it seems like the love is mutual. If reports are to be believed, the Proteas star has expressed his desire to name his third child after the Indian wonder Taj Mahal.
The monument is really special to ABD as he had proposed marriage to Danielle in front of the Taj Mahal during the IPL in 2012.
The couple has a son and a daughter and will be soon welcoming a new life in their family. On Tuesday, Danielle wife confirmed the news through her official Instagram handle. “Hello baby girl,” she captioned the post while showing her baby bump.
As far as the return of cricket in South Africa post-COVID-19 era is concerned, De Villiers will be seen in action on July 18 in the three-team (3T) match organised by Cricket South Africa (CSA).
De Villiers will be leading ‘Eagles’ which has the likes of Aiden Markram, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo and Rassie van der Dussen among others in the side. The other two teams are ‘Kites’ and ‘Kingfishers’ which will be led by Quinton de Kock and Kagiso Rabada respectively. The format of the matches will be a new experience for the fans, and it remains to be seen how the format turns out to be.
