Injured South African batsman, AB De Villiers, despite nursing an injury, expects to play South Africa’s inaugural Pink ball Test to be played in Adelaide from November 24. It will be the last Test of the three-match series between the two teams. Currently, South Africa is one up in the series after their 177-run win in the Perth Test.

“It would be a dream come true to play in a day-night Test against Australia,” de Villiers told Adelaide’s 5AA radio station in early October.

“May be after the six weeks, if I do fly over straight away, I’ll be there for the second Test match. There may be an opportunity to prepare for that game — not play in it — and then be ready for the Adelaide Test.” said a hopeful AB De Villiers.

Despite missing on the services of Dale Steyn, African team toppled the Australian batting line up winning the opening game of the innings by the margin of 177 runs. Kagiso Rabada shone for them as the youngster played a perfect role and went on to eclipse his fellow bowlers in terms of wickets taken. He will have to continue his form in the absence of Dale Steyn who has been ruled out of the series for six months.

However, South African coach Russell Domingo was optimistic of his return and was not hopeful of his return and said

“I doubt it. He’s been caddying for a mate at a golf tournament. So I don’t think he’s going to be fit for Adelaide to be honest,” he said.
