AB de Villiers is IPL’s most impactful player, says Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli, Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper, and captain lauded AB de Villiers for smashing an excellent knock of 55 off just 22 balls. He said that ABD is the most significant player in the tournament and can bring a turn in the game anytime.

AB de Villiers knock was the must needed as it guided RCB to a 7 wicket win over Rajasthan Royals. It’s the captain knock also that helped them to touch the make of a respectful total. He smashed 43 off 32 balls and the team chased the mark with a total of 179/3 in 19.4 overs.  

Virat Kohli after the win appreciated ABD and said, being honest, as a team we get tense when it’s a chase and at the same time we are not sure how many balls AB is going to get his grip. 

It’s not only ABD but credit also goes to Gurkeerat, he remains stuck with ABD. Gurkeerat also showed his power and got that important boundary. For ABD it doesn’t matter who’s the bowler, he knows what’s his role.

He added, irrespective of the situation AB has always been someone who’s ready to harmonize his game according to the need of the game. Moreover, Kohli said, In his eyes, ABD is the most impactful player than anyone else in the IPL.   

Kohli further to this piled up honor to his bowlers as they amazing bowling and perfect line and length help the team to restrict RR at 177/6 in their 20 overs.

Good news from the RCB as Chris Morris returned in from his figures of 4-26 in his four overs proved his crucial bowling and strategy. In the bowling department, Yuzvendra Chahal also amazed everyone with his turns and bagged two wickets.

It’s not the RCB we glimpsed in the previous season, this time the batting department looks pretty strong after Finch gets in. Added to this the bowling department also looks amazing listed with some great names as Morris, Saini, Washy, and Isuru. 


Presently, RCB is at the third position in the point table with 12 points under their name in a total of 9 games. And now, the team is preparing to take on KKR at Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on the 21st of October. 

Stay Tuned! IPL is live not on the ground but off ground too.
