AB De Villiers
The flamboyant South African Captain is one of the potential game changers we are going to witness this World Cup. The ability to hit the ball out of the park, up the scoring rate at any stage of the game and the potential to build an innings – Abraham Benjamin DeVilliers can do it all. South Africa’s performance will depend a lot on how ABD shapes up in this tournament.
Small grounds in New Zealand may make this World Cup a high scoring tournament. South Africa’s fortunes will depend a lot on their bowling unit. Troubling even the best in the business with his pace, line and length, has become the way of life for Dale Steyn. While he steps up to spearhead the bowling attack, his partnership with Philander could make the opposition look wanting, right from the time go.
