When AB de Villiers has the bat in hand, nothing seems impossible. The South Africa star has left fans and pundits bamboozled with his mind-boggling displays with the willow.

The explosive batsman, who can change the course of a game in quick time by manufacturing shots that is difficult to even imagine for others, has all the shots in the book. Known as Mr 360 degree for his ability to play shots all around the field, the right-handed batsman has come up with another jaw-dropping shot called the ‘reverse-hook’ which is bound to leave others shell-shocked.

He played the shot during the fourth One-Day International of the ongoing series against New Zealand. The 32-year-old scored 72 off just 59 balls in to help the Proteas score 279 for 8 on a difficult Hamilton track. And while the fans were treated to another de Villiers’ special, the Proteas star came with a remarkable shot that left everyone including the commentators surprised. He was all set to play a reverse sweep and even changed his stance to play the shot but Kiwi quick Trent Boult, one of the finest death bowlers in the world, bowled a slow bouncer. However, de Villiers, totally unfazed Boult’s ploy of unsettling him, waited for the ball before playing a left-handed hook shot for a boundary.

Here is a clip of that amazing shot:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
