Cape Town: Former South Africa player, AB de Villiers, has launched a social media app ‘ABDCam’, using which fans and users will be able to take pictures and videos with various stickers and frames found in the app.
The app has been launched to raise funds for youth in South Africa. Users can earn JETpoints from their selfies that can be contributed to social impact causes through the AB de Villiers Foundation. The app is available for both Android and iOS users.
“I wouldn’t be here without my fans, they are incredibly close to my heart,” Sports24 quoted De Villiers, as saying.
“With the birth of the AB de Villiers Foundation and my new official app, ABDCam, my fans can now have access to exclusive, cool ways to create their own content whilst helping kids around the world,” he added.
The wicket-keeper batsman is one of the best batsmen of his time and holds some records, like the record for fastest 50, 100 and 150 in ODIs at the same time, that will require strenuous work for any player who is planning to break these.
Although the 35-year old has taken retirement from international cricket still holds a broad fan-base and they watch him with the same excitement when he plays in the league matches.
De Villiers, called by the name Mr. 360, is set to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore in this season of IPL, which is scheduled to kick-off on March 23, under the leadership of Virat Kohli.
