AB de Villiers’ wicketkeeping questioned
AB de Villiers’ batting is being hindered by his wicket-keeping despite his own claims to the contrary, according to former Australian gloveman Ian Healy. While Healy said there is no reason de Villiers cannot become a specialist keeper-batsmen, he will only be convinced of his ability in the dual role once de Villiers has proved himself in a tough situation.
“My jury is out until we see how good he is when the pressure is on,” Healy told ESPNcricinfo. “I am going to really have a good look at him and see. But I do think it’s going to take some effectiveness out of his batting.”
