AB de Villiers is a better batsman than Sir Don Bradman – at least according to former England bowler Bob Willis.
Willis made the assessment after De Villiers’s world record 31-ball century against the West Indies in Johannesburg on Sunday.
“I’ve been saying for the last 30 years that Viv Richards has to be the best batsman of all time – even better than Sir Don Bradman in my book – but I’m going to have to reassess because this guy is something extraordinary,” Willis told Sky Sports UK.
“The improvisation, the strength, the intelligence – knowing exactly where every fielder is and where the gaps are – were unbelievable.”|
While Willis’ comments are almost certainly controversial, there is no doubt De Villiers will go down as one of the greatest batsman in the history of the game.
So, what do you think? Is De Villiers a better batsman than Sir Don?
