During a question-answer session with his fans on Twitter, England fast bowler Jade Dernbach revealed some of his personal choices in the cricketing arena starting from his favourite cricketer to the batsman whom he most feared bowling at. While he revealed that his favourite batsman is none other than South African superhero AB de Villiers, he also added that apart from AB he found MS Dhoni as the most dangerous batsman to bowl at especially at the shortest format of the game.

During the session, the fast bowler also revealed the name of his favourite Pakistani cricketer. Azhar Mahmood who played for Pakistan for many years before moving to England is his personal choice. He has been a valuable member of any limited overs side and has participated in almost all T20 tournaments all across the world.

Now coming to AB de Villiers, this man doesn’t need any introduction. He has terrorised top class bowling attacks with his audacious stroke play over the years and is arguably the greatest batsman across all 3 formats at the moment. His near competitors are Virat Kohli, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson.

He has been a sensational player for South Africa but he will definitely look to improve his international T20 record. He also holds the record for the fastest ODI century in a mere 31 balls which came against West Indies. Besides his batting skills, he is an exceptional fielder and can win you matches with his heroics in the field.

Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is currently going through a lean patch in his career but given his exceptional hitting abilities it might be a matter of time before we might see the old Dhoni back in action. From his performance in the last 2 matches, we might be in for some Dhoni specials as Vivo IPL 10 reaches the business end.
