Cape Town - Former Australian batsman Michael Hussey has heaped praise on South Africa’s AB de Villiers after the latter’s reached the 100-Test milestone.
The rain in Bangalore looks to be saving South Africa from
a second straight defeat against India, but it did not come before De Villiers notched
85 in his milestone Test.
Tributes have poured in for De Villiers over the past few
days, and the latest to join the chorus of praise is Hussey, who scored 6 235
runs in 79 Tests for the Baggy Greens.
"What I see in AB de Villiers is enormous talent and
enormous skill,” Hussey said via a video posted on Cricket South Africa's official Facebook page.
“That’s a part of it. And the other thing I really love
about AB de Villiers is his character... probably more than anything. It seems
that even if the team’s going really well or he's going really well personally - or the team's going really poorly or he's not making runs - he’s a very consistent
character. He’s up there in the top echelon of players and people.”
Hussey, 40, has done some work as a batting consultant to
the Proteas in recent times.
