Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are great friends. Both have been playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore for many years in the IPL. Both are considered as finest batters of the modern-day generation. ABD revealed what connects him and Kohli. He told sport24 that “We are both fighters and don’t enjoy losing, we love batting together and taking the game away from teams.”
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is currently the no.1 ranked batsman in ODI cricket. De Villiers also expressed his opinion on why he thinks Virat is the best batsman in the world. He said, “Virat’s performances over the last while have been incredible and I can’t see it stopping very soon. I have played with him for eight years now in the IPL and you can never take the class out of the guy. However, he is human after all and, like any other cricketer, he will go through patches from time to time where he has to go back to the basics and work his way through it again. I believe it’s his personality and mental strength that gets him through those moments and makes him the best ODI player in the world at the moment.”
AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are set to reunite for Bangalore again in this year’s IPL. RCB are yet to win the title of IPL and both the players will try their level best to help the side win the coveted title this time around.
