South Africa - Young Pretender
AB de Villiers
Age 23
ODI debut: v England, February 2005

AB de Villiers is a talented sportsman, who it is believed could have shone in golf - he is a scratch player despite playing infrequently - or tennis had he chosen them.

Athletic in the field, running out England captain Michael Vaughan on his debut, he gave options replacing Mark Boucher behind the stumps, but with the gritty keeper back, de Villiers now patrols the important off-side areas.

Still awaiting his maiden one-day century, but came closest in the final match of the series against India with an unbeaten 92.
