He smashed a breathtaking 76 runs from 34 balls to help RCB post a mammoth 204 in their quota of 20 overs. <p></p> <p></p>Speaking to coach Mark Boucher towards the late end of the IPL last year, De Villiers mentioned when Mark Boucher asked him if was interested, he said, "Absolutely". <p></p> <p></p>"If there's no space for me, so be it. If I can slot in there, it will be fantastic if all those things fall in place," he further said. <p></p> <p></p>In 114 Tests and 228 one-day internationals, he has scored at an average of above 50 in both formats. He also played 78 T20Is for SA and scored at a strike rate of over 135. <p></p> <p></p>Fans feel with the T20 World Cup being held in India, de Villiers could just be the ingredient that South Africa needs to win the title.
