IPL 2017: AB de Villiers is a freak. When he enters the field with a bat in his hand, he can do anything with that magical wand. He is a cricketer par excellence. In his first game of IPL 2017, AB de Villiers mesmerised the crowd once again with his outstanding hitting.
De Villiers came in to bat when Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were in a spot of bother. after losing their captain in the first over of the match itself. The ball wasn’t coming nicely onto the bat and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) bowlers were bowling good lines with subtle variations in the pace. AB took some time initially but once he got going, there was no one stopping him. He moved around the crease in his trademark style and made KXIP bowlers look very ordinary. Suddenly, the pitch that was looking difficult to bat turned into a batting paradise as De Villiers smashed the ball around the park for fours and sixes.
He came in to bat in the first over of the match itself after Shane Watson was dismissed in the first over of the RCB innings by Axar Patel. De Villiers didn’t take too long to get back into the groove as he smashed the first six of RCB innings in the third over, which was bowled by Mohit Sharma.
