Not just cricket, de Villiers can play the guitar too: Watch AB, wife Danielle cover Ronan Keating

AB de Villiers, also known as the man who can do everything, is among the best in the world at just about everything. His innumerable achievements in several different sporting disciplines have already astounded everybody, but the South African seems to be in no mood to slow down anytime soon. Cricket, hockey, football, tennis, rugby, swimming, golf, athletics and badminton have all been checked and aced. Perhaps realising that he was running out of sports to master, ABD has turned his keen eye towards other pleasures life has to offer.

Why should only sports benefit from de Villiers’ genius? Why not the world of arts? Fear no more. Armed with a guitar, a baritone and the lyrics to the Ronan Keating song When You Say Nothing At All, ABD with wife Danielle did a living room rendition of a song he says he learnt when he was 11-years-old. “Everyone knows this song,” de Villiers says, before vowing everybody with the dexterity of his acoustic guitar work and a surprisingly deep voice.

Special mention must go to wife Danielle, who has been loving her time in India of late. With the husband in what has been quite a purple patch, even by his own very purple career standards, the wife has found the venues (musical, not sporting) of India very receptive and friendly. Barely a month ago, Danielle and Australian all-rounder Shane Watson sang a duet together, covering the hit David Guetta number Titanium.

And now she has shared a duet with husband ABD. Perhaps we should ask her to rate which of the two is the better singer/guitarist.
