ABD said “Hello V, My Biscuit. I hope you are doing well. I am currently in Banglore. It’s quite ironic because am sitting here and sending this message just to wish you a very happy birthday on 5th of November. I hope you have a fantastic day. You are one hell of a cricket player. But you are much better human being”
AB De Villiers currently in Bangalore –
AB De Villiers last played the IPL in 2021 before hanging up his boots from all forms of the game.
