They say that if AB De Villiers gets going, he can easily mount the impossible for his team. Today was one such day from the South African great who took out the Kolkata bowlers by bits and pieces.
He walked into bat when Royal Challengers Bangalore was stuttering at 94 for 2. Things went further downhill for Bangalore with the scores slowing down in no time.
Kohli struggled to clear the ropes while De Villiers took a defensive stance for a while. The KKR bowlers came on top until the 15th over before ABD opened his arms.
The South African stalwart came out in flying colours in the correct time. He started his onslaught against a soaring Kamlesh Nagarkoti, smoking him for two massive sixes and a boundary.
He followed it up with another big over against the Australia fast bowler, Pat Cummins. With relentless aggression being breathed down the neck of the Australian, ABD took him out in stunning fashion.
In fact, two of his sixes struck a couple of cars outside the stadium. The best part about his innings was his intent to continue the momentum that saw the run rate ticking higher and higher as De Villiers seemed a lot more menacing.
Despite, the ground being a small one, the track was on the slower side and proved to be a paradise for the spinners. The ball was turning magically and refused to come up to the bat. However, greats do not just give up like that and this innings from ABD was a classic example of one of the best T-20 cricketers in the current roster of cricket.
