Cape Town - The Blacks Caps tried a bizarre tactic to unsettle Proteas skipper AB de Villiers in the fourth ODI in Hamilton on Wednesday.
During De Villiers' innings, the ground announcers at Hamilton's Seddon Park played the skipper's own song.
'Maak Jou Drome Waar', which De Villiers composed and sang in 2010 with singer-songwriter Ampie du Preez, played on the loudspeaker during a break in play.

De Villiers, who was on 35* at the time, noticed his song playing in the middle on the field and started dancing. Sadly the camera's failed to catch the skipper enjoying his own track.
"I did (notice it), I was singing along and no one picked up on it," De Villiers told reporters after the match.
"I was actually playing a little air guitar on my bat, as well. But no one picked it up, thought I might be on the highlights package with my guitar playing.
"I loved it and they got to do it more often."
Whether or not this was a tactic to unrattle or distract the South African star, it only fuelled the skipper more, as he top-scored for the Proteas, smashing an unbeaten 70 off 59 balls.
However, it was Martin Guptill's unbelievable unbeaten knock of 180 off 138 balls that took his side to a seven wicket victory.
The fifth and final deciding ODI will take place in Auckland on Saturday, starting at 03:00 (SA time).
