‘So many great memories flowing back.’ – AB de Villiers wrote on Twitter after reaching Bangalore
Speaking of the video, the former Protea batter was seen talking to a fan. The fan already had a tattoo of de Villiers on his right hand. So, the player gave an autograph on that same hand to make that day more special for that fan. While giving the autograph, de Villiers said that he never thought such a thing would happen to him.
He said: “Much respect. I never thought this would happen to me. I am giving my best autograph.” The fan also looked very happy at that gesture from the South African great. He even made a tattoo of that autograph along with that old one. Speaking about AB de Villiers, he came to Bangalore on 3 November 2022. He also shared a tweet after checking in to the hotel.
Ab de Villiers wrote: “Just checked in to the ITC Royal Gardenia for the first time in many years! So many great memories flowing back. Also been told this is my 25th time checking in here Tele is on and ready for the Pak/SA game. Go Proteas.” However, South Africa failed to fulfill his expectations as they lost both of their last matches against Pakistan and the Netherlands. Thus, they got knocked out of the 20-20 World Cup.
