IPL 2019: It Is My Privilege To Watch Virat Kohli Closely – AB de Villiers
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have always been two superstars of Royal Challengers Bangalore. In fact, they are the masterful batsmen in world cricket. Not only they share a good bond on the field but also they spend quality time off the field as well. Meanwhile, AB de Villiers lauds Virat Kohli’s fantastic knock against KKR.
He scored a brilliant hundred against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. Virat Kohli, initially, played an anchor role for the team when Moeen Ali was on a song. Later, after getting into the groove, Kohli showed his class.
Virat Kohli erupted in a blaze:
Meanwhile, AB de Villiers, in his column to Times of India, heaped praises on the skipper of the team. He termed that the knock of Virat Kohli is a special one, as it is one of the perfect T20 innings of all time by an opening batsman.
“Virat has endured a challenging campaign, like all of us at RCB — although we’re not dead yet in this tournament — but he produced the perfect T20 innings in Kolkata, batting from the first over until the last ball, scoring a masterful century, leading his team to victory.”
“He initially accepted responsibility to anchor the innings, skillfully working the ball into gaps while Moeen Ali led the charge; and then, in the closing four overs, like a cricketing Vesuvius, Virat erupted in a blaze of dazzling stroke-play, crashing 45 runs from only 16 balls,” he added.
Virat Kohli will lead RCB or India from the front:
Of late, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli is enjoying quite a success in the International Cricket. He has been splendid for India across the formats with his willow and captaincy as well. Meanwhile, the superstar of the game, AB de Villiers hails Virat Kohli as the best player in the world at the moment.
”Kohli leads RCB and India from the front, skill and courage and given that he plays in so much scrutiny from over a billion people dissecting every word, action and reaction of the cricketer. “It is my privilege to watch him work, to watch him practice and plan, to watch him perform and, as a man and cricketer, he has my total admiration,” the former South Africa captain added.
Well, as AB de Villiers said, it was a top knock from Virat Kohli on the other day. It would be interesting to see how Virat Kohli approaches the remaining games in the tournament.
