After electing to bat first, Royal Challengers Bangalore were given a brilliant start by openers Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch. But after the former’s departure, the run-rate dropped as KKR tightened their line and didn’t allow RCB to score quick runs. However, all of that changed when AB de Villers came to the crease.

Yet another Royal Challengers Bangalore game and yet another masterclass from the sensational duo of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. Both the players stitched up a 100-run partnership to take RCB to a score of 194/6 which looked unattainable after the team had lost their way on the middle overs. The partnership went at a rate of over two runs per ball, with the South African scoring bulk of those runs.

But after the former’s departure, the run-rate dropped as KKR tightened their line and didn’t allow RCB to score quick runs. However, all of that changed when AB de Villers came to the crease. 

The South African took some time to get settled and then turned the tide on Kolkata Knight Riders. AB de Villiers took KKR bowlers to the cleaners and brought up yet another half-century this campaign in just 23 deliverers. Virat Kohli also supported his compatriot in a great manner, taking RCB to a respectable score.

Fans were impressed with the batting performance displayed by Virat Kohli and AB de Villers at the Sharjah Cricket Ground and praised the duo on social media. Here are some of the reactions from fans.
