Quality player, sadly I always wanted to call him Abie the Fishman...

A fantastic player to watch -- the purity of his ball striking was wonderful to behold.

Give him another 3 years to count his billions of rupees in the IPL.

He will have a much longer T/20 career on the circuit than if he'd kept playing international cricket.

I heard that Chuck Norris tried to kick him once but AB reverse swept the kick away and then invented the first electric car.

Decent player too :thumbup:

Awesome player. Very consistent.
Didn’t see enough of him play in NZ and to some extent he didn’t save his best vs the Kiwis.
Was great seeing him out here 2 seasons ago and he won a couple of ODIs for the Proteas with super intelligent and composed batting. A complete natural talent, so much time, so many shot options like all the great players.
