Ab De Villiers Retires
AB de Villiers RCB: De Villiers, one of South Africa’s greatest batsmen, made a crucial announcement on Friday that surprised everyone. He said he was retiring from all forms of cricket. De Villiers will be playing franchise cricket in 2018 despite missing out on international cricket. He played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. De Villiers, who started with the Delhi Daredevils, came into the RCB after the fourth season. The friendship with Virat Kohli started from then on. As soon as De Villiers announced his retirement, Kohli sent an emotional message via Twitter to his special friend who could not control his emotions.
Kohli tweeted that his heart was sad, but that de Villiers had made the right decision for him and his family. “It hurts my heart. But for you, I know you have always made the right decision for your family. I love your decision, ”de Villiers replied after seeing the message from his friend. “Love you to my brother,” he replied.
The greatest batsmen of our time ..
In another tweet, Kohli described De Villiers as the best batsman of his time. “He is one of the best batsmen of our time. He was the most inspiring person of all the people I met. The innings you have played for RCB have been great and we are proud of that. Our friendship precedes this game. Will always continue. ‘
Although he won many matches, only the title ..
It is a known fact that both of them are the greatest batsmen of today. Together they have won many matches for RCB. However, the pair will definitely be disappointed as they have not won a single IPL. The batting ruin of the duo left the bowlers reeling. The duo also hold the record for the largest partnership in the IPL. Kohli and De Villiers shared a 229-run partnership with the Gujarat Lions in Bangalore on 14 May 2016. This is the biggest partnership in IPL history so far. Kohli hit an unbeaten 109 off 55 balls with five fours and eight sixes. De Villiers, meanwhile, faced 52 balls and scored an unbeaten 129 with 10 fours and 12 sixes.
Earlier in 2015, the couple also shared a double century. RCB, who batted first in the match on 10 May 2015, scored 235 for one. The duo added 215 for the second wicket in the match. Virat Kohli scored 82 off 50 balls. It included six fours as well as four sixes. De Villiers was unbeaten on 133 off 59 balls with 19 fours and four sixes. This is the highest score for de Villiers in the IPL.
To the best player of our times and the most inspirational person I’ve met, you can be very proud of what you’ve done and what you’ve given to RCB my brother. Our bond is beyond the game and will always be.
