De Villiers' whirlwind 176 propels SA to 353
After the match De Villiers admitted that he did some soul searching during his time away from the game and is now prepared to battle it out for a place in the Test team as well.
But it is never confusing watchingAB de Villiers. The man himself responded with a vote of confidence in his teammates.
With 19 months between now and the World Cup, Gibson's immediate task is to begin moulding the team into a unit that could challenge for the title. Kirsten's record was his for the taking going into the final 3 overs but then De Villiers it not the sort of player who would be anxious about that.
After the business as usual opening stand of 90 between De Kock and Hashim Amla, De Villiers was involved in stands of 136 with Amla - this was both a ground third wicket record and a third wicket record against Bangladesh - and a further 117 with JP Duminy. Dwayne Pretorius got out on the first ball he faced by Hossain.
Opener Imrul Kayes and wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim put on 93 for the third wicket, with Bangladesh's reply reaching 162 before Kayes miscued a delivery from Imran Tahir to De Villiers at extra cover from the final ball of the 29th over to depart for 68. That he did all that without playing an global game in more than three months speaks of his quality.
"Wow! what smashing by AB De villiers". It was great to be out there with Hashim, he has a very calming influence. I'm hitting the ball as well as ever, and I could feel that. "I just spent a bit of time out there and then some of the boundaries kept flowing".
"I won't say if I didn't play that knock that we would have lost the game". But there's reason to believe he may yet break a few more.
South Africa failed to retain enough steam in the tank towards the end but ended with a daunting target because of the efforts of their former captain. Before then, there is the small matter of finishing Bangladesh off, and the inaugural four-day day-night Test over Boxing Day, for which de Villiers is available. One or two players always step up to hold a fight. "If selected, I am there. If it all worked out I would have got there but I m happy with the 176". I can't except that I am going to be in the squad, I have been out of the squad and guys that have come in have done well.
Just as the opening stand was about to touch the 100-run mark, de Kock walked across a little too much to miss a straightforward delivery.
