Abraham Benjamin "AB" de Villiers (born 17 February 1984) is a South African cricketer.
He is a talented sportsman and has excelled in golf, rugby, badminton, cricket and tennis. At his school he was part of the school's U-14 cricket team. He played golf at a good level.
Rugby was the most followed sport at his school so he took it up too. He once had a flair for hockey and made it to the U-16 side of the school. He was shortlisted for South Africa's junior national hockey team.
He returned to play rugby when he stopped with hockey. He was soon part of the school's rugby team. He performed extraordinarily well and was selected for the Blue Bulls U-18 side, which had some big names that would later represent South African rugby.
