What to say about this player. He is well-known on his own and doesn’t need any introduction. So, the fact is that he was the first-ever player to reach a double hundred in ODI cricket. He did so in the match against South Africa and scored 200 runs being not out till the end.
He played a splendid inning of exactly 200 runs and took the team score to 401/3. It was a huge score made by the Indian team.
While chasing this huge score AB De Villers put up a good fight and scored a century but was not enough to save the team and the whole team got eliminated at the score of 248 runs.
