AB De Villiers Sings At Father’s Birthday, RCB And Fans Mighty Impressed


Whether there’s one person who is capable of pulling off just anything on the earth, it’s got to be former South Africa captain AB de Villiers. His talent isn’t limited to just sports. You may have already heard or read that De Villiers played tennis, rugby, badminton, football and hockey alongside cricket while growing up, but do you know that he could play the guitar and sing as polite? No, correct? Polite, here’s the proof that the man can just do anything.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the franchise De Villiers plays for in the Indian Premier League (IPL), on Wednesday shared a video of the 37-year-old with a guitar, performing at the birthday party of his father who recently turned 70.

Accompanying him in the performance was once his wife Danielle, who sang just as beautifully as her husband.

“Proof that he literally can do anything,” RCB captioned the post, before reposting De Villiers’ message. The right-handed attacking batsman said that May 29 was once his father’s 70th birthday and he had the privilege of performing one of his favourite songs with his wife.

“We all interpret songs in our own unique way, this song has a especially special meaning to me and rings a bell in my memory that God is all the time there, it doesn’t matter what happens,” he said.

De Villiers added that while singing when he looked across the room to his dad, it reminded him how fortunate he had been to have had him by his side as a role mannequin for such a lot of years.

“Thanks, Anton Botha for your effort and time. Your fantastic set after our performance completed a very special evening,” he concluded his post.

Following a great run in IPL 2021, which needed to be suspended because of a breach in the bio bubble, De Villiers had said that he was once in talks with the South African Cricket for a potential return to international cricket, which he had quit back in 2018.

Alternatively, to fans’ disappointment, the board final month issued a commentary saying the former Proteas captain had made up our minds not to go back to the national squad.

“Discussions with AB de Villiers have concluded with the batsman deciding once and for all that his retirement will remain last,” Cricket South Africa said in its commentary.


The right-handed attacking batsman will, alternatively, continue to play franchise cricket.

De Villiers has played 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals (T20Is).
