Cape Town - Cricket South Africa's (CSA) Hubs and RPC programme was the recipient of a generous donation from Standard Bank Proteas captain, AB de Villiers, today.
As part of the launch of his autobiography, De Villiers donated copies of his book to all 58 Hubs and RPC’s around the country.
The Alexandra Hub based at the Alexandra Cricket Club was the first to get hold of this sought after autobiography when De Villiers paid a visit to the Alexandra Township to personally deliver a set of books this afternoon.
“It’s a humbling experience for me to be here this afternoon and to interact with the kids representing the Alexandra Hub,” said De Villiers.
“I see myself as a role model to all up and coming cricketers and if what they read in my book can inspire them to greater heights and success, I will be a very happy person.
“This is my first visit to a CSA Hub and from what I can see, it’s an impressive program and credit must go to all involved at CSA for this wonderful initiative,” concluded De Villiers.
CSA will distribute the books on behalf of De Villiers to the remaining 57 Hubs and RPC’s over the next few weeks.
