AB de Villiers VS Hashim Amla

The two best batsman at present, Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers, both playing for South Africa and demolishing all the opposition bolwers, particularly in the last 2-3 years. One is purely classical batsman and the other a hard hitting, game changing batsman. 





Who do you choose if someone asks you, "Hey mate, Who is better ? Amla or AB ?" 

Well, without any doubt, it should be the toughest choice, for cricket lovers. 

How about having some stats in the bag to differentiate both of them !!
