When two great players and close friends, South Africa’s AB de Villiers and Indian captain Virat Kohli combine, fun is guaranteed, be it on the field or off it. Recently, both the members of the Indian Premier League side (IPL) Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were involved in an Instagram LIVE session and they picked a joint ODI team of India and South Africa.
Both the players mutually decided that the team should be captained by Indian great Mahendra Singh Dhoni. De Villiers said that Dhoni is the coolest and calmest captain he has ever seen. Although, the South African never played under MS’ captaincy, but has developed a lot of respect for the Indian.
“I have always had a world of respect for him, he is always calm and knows the game well,” said de Villiers.
The team has greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Jacques Kallis and also includes youngsters like Kagiso Rabada and Jasprit Bumrah. Inclusion of Yuzvendra Chahal though is beyond imagination for any cricket fan.
Team: Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Jacques Kallis, MS Dhoni (captain), Yuvraj Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dale Steyn, Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada.
