IPL Is Better Than ICC World Cup, Feels AB de Villiers
Here comes quite a statement from AB de Villiers. The superstar of the game believes that the Indian Premier League is better than the ICC World Cup when it comes to intensity. Perhaps, one would have never expected such a statement from AB de Villiers, who got a huge fan base across the world.
Following his retirement, AB de Villiers has played Mzansi Super League, the Bangladesh Premier League. the Pakistan Super League and the Indian Premier League 2019. Meanwhile, he believes that no other tournament can come close to the quality of the Indian Premier League.
IPL is so Intense – AB de Villiers
Speaking to Livemint, the flamboyant batsman quoted that the last 5-6 editions of Indian Premier League have seen a tremendous rise in fan base and the quality of the tournament. AB de Villiers strongly believes that no other tournament would ever come close to the IPL.
“Nothing comes close to the IPL, to be honest. I know I am sitting in India and busy playing in the IPL, so it’s easy to say. But I have played in quite a few (tournaments) now across the world. I think it’s better than the World Cup,” AB de Villiers said.
Explaining it, he quoted that the tournament is even better than the ICC World Cup. AB de Villiers believes that the tournament got the huge fan base and the intensity, which has grown a lot in the recent seasons.
”It’s the most incredible tournament to be part of. It wasn’t always the case. The first five years were nowhere close to where we are now. It’s so intense, so fast, and the following is just incredible,” De Villiers was quoted as saying in Livemint.
Well, it is surprising to hear such a statement from the stalwart player. Currently, he is plying his trade for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League 2019. His side once again failed to touch the ropes of the playoffs.
In the next assignment, he will be in the action when they lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. This is their final game of the tournament in this year edition.
