AB De Villiers: The heart and soul of RCB
AB De Villiers is undoubtedly one of the greats in the modern era. However, AB also qualifies as the greatest to step foot in IPL. He is the 6th highest run-scorer in IPL history with 5056 runs at an average of 40.77 and a whopping strike rate of 152.38. He also has 3 hundreds to his name.
AB has played numerous game-changing innings for RCB. He has taken his team home from impossible situations. Even in this year’s IPL, his crucial innings against Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders took RCB to a safe total. His innings while chasing against Mumbai Indians in the opening match of the IPL took RCB home from a tough situation. Even though AB has retired from international cricket for over three years, he still plays like he played in his prime.
RCB are currently placed in third place. They have managed to secure five wins out of the seven matches. Out of those five wins, AB contributed to almost all the matches. Hence, he will play a crucial part in the second leg as well.
Virat Kohli and his men will play their first match of the second leg of the IPL on 20th September 2021 against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Abu Dhabi.
