AB de Villiers is regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all times. However, tonight he stunned everyone not just with his thrilling batting skills but also by taking one of the greatest catches you will ever see, during tonight’s match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
It happened in the second innings of the match, when Sunrisers Hyderabad was chasing 218 runs, when Alex Hales was on strike. He stepped out and tried to smash the ball delivered by Moeen Ali out of the park. However, the ball and the shot was superbly timed but there was one man who made everyone’s jaw drop.
The South African batsmen jumped and plucked the ball with one hand, in such a way that it made everyone go in a state of shock, including the skipper Virat Kohli. The audience and the players couldn’t believe at the stunning catch by AB de Villiers.
AB de Villiers mind boggling catch has literally made the twitterati go berserk. People just can’t stop gushing over the very talented, AB de Villiers and his stunning catch. People are sharing the videos and pictures of that catch and are calling it as CATCH OF THE SEASON.

Have a look at some of the reactions from twitterati:
Spirited effort from the Sunrisers trying to chase 219. Williamson was absolutely superb. Still can’t get over that catch from De villiers to dismiss Hales. RCB are well and truly in it , and after looking down and out after the first half are now at No5 in points table #RCBvSRH
