AB de Villiers, says the satisfaction of leading from the front has been the driving force behind his match-winning performances for South Africa this year. De Villiers is currently ranked No. 1 on the ICC One-Day International (ODI) batsman rankings, and averages 76.85 in 10 matches in 2014. His list of match-winning performances this year continues to grow.

De Villiers' contribution of 108 off 71 balls to win the series against Sri Lanka in Hambantota, 57 not-out against Australia in the final of the triangular series in Zimbabwe and 79 not-out on Tuesday, highlight the skipper's insatiable desire to lead from the front when it counts.
