AB holds thumbs for day-night Test

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

DE­SPITE be­ing ruled out of the up­com­ing Test tour to Aus­tralia through in­jury, Proteas cap­tain AB de Vil­liers is hop­ing to defy med­i­cal ad­vice and avail him­self for the his­toric flood­lit Test in Ade­laide on Novem­ber 24.

“Ac­cord­ing to the sur­geons and the doc­tors, there’s no chance. They gave me six weeks be­fore re­hab starts but I al­ways feel the re­hab phase can be sped up a bit,” De Vil­liers told Five AA ra­dio in Ade­laide.

“Maybe af­ter the six weeks if I do fly over straight away, I will be there for the sec­ond Test match, have the op­por­tu­nity to pre­pare dur­ing that game, not play in it and then be ready for the Ade­laide Test which would be a dream come to true to play in a day-night Test match against Aus­tralia at the Ade­laide Oval.” – Zaahier Adams
