Set to play in his landmark 100th match in the second Test against India here on Saturday, the South African batting lynchpin, perceived to be a friendly player among cricketers said that he is not a nice guy once he enters the cricket field.
     
"I'm not a nice guy on the field. I want to win games. I'll do whatever it takes for us to win games of cricket. If I have to sledge, I'll get involved like that. I'll try and intimidate a player if I have to. I'll try and get Virat off his game by talking about his technique and little flaws. I don't mind doing things like that, whatever it takes to win games of cricket,” said the Australian batsman.

"I've never really respected a guy who's been a 'nice guy' on the field. I want opposition to be hard to play to win games for their team. Off the field, I try to be a good human being and it's got nothing to do with cricket. I know my role in the side and that's to win games for my team. A lot of times I don't have to be a nice guy to do that," he added.
     
De Villiers said he tries to be a good human being off the field.
