AB DeVries is such a cricketer, his fan following is all over the world. ABD is known for his game and sports skills, but in the early stages of his career, he cheated on a match against India, but despite this he could not win his team. The Future Cup was played in Ireland in 2007 between India and South Africa. The last match of this ODI series was played in Belfast on 1 July. South Africa won the first match of the series, while India won the second. ABD was in the early stages of their careers and opened the innings with Morne van Wyk in that game. Vic and Jacques Kallis were out of the account opening.
The team scored just 8 runs and South Africa lost two wickets. South Africa’s innings of 4.1 overs and Zaheer Khan could not read ABD and the ball went to Sachin Tendulkar in slips off the bat. The rest of Team India players, including Zaheer, started celebrating, but ABD did not move from his place. Aleem Dar was umpiring in that match. ABD stood on the wicket and probably saw Aleem Dar calling him not.
There was no DRS at the time, so India had to agree to the umpire’s decision. Indian players did not understand ABD’s dishonesty and were surprised to see the entire Indian team including Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Zaheer Khan. Watch Video –
Despite this, ABD was unable to play a big innings and scored 15 off 35 balls and Sourav Ganguly was dismissed. The match was reduced to 31-31 overs due to rain. South Africa scored 148 for seven in 31 overs and India won the match by scoring 152 runs for the loss of four wickets in 30.2 overs.
