“Cricketers To Fuse Into One,” Kumar Sangakkara Mentions AB De Villiers

Kumar Sangakkara, a former T20 World Cup champion and a mainstay of Sri Lankan cricket, had nothing but love for the former RCB teammates AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. The pair was formidable since they were aware of which bowlers to target. We have observed that Indian players and foreign stars have developed strong bonds because to the IPL.

The dangerous pair of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers has increased the game’s intrigue and entertainment value. Because of these two cricketers, the RCB franchise became well-known. Between 2011 and 2021, they played cricket together and ruled the sport. Being ruthless and playing smart cricket made it difficult to break up that connection.

A Superb Pair: AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli

These two batters were undoubtedly the backbone of RCB’s batting order, it wouldn’t be incorrect to state. The failure to reach the finish line in the 2011 and 2016 seasons is something that AB and Virat would lament.

Virat Kohli scored 5 hundred and 44 half centuries while scoring 6624 runs for RCB in 223 games. AB scored 4491 runs in 156 games for RCB between 2011 and 2021, scoring 2 centuries and 37 half centuries.

The pair has been a part of five partnerships with 100+ runs and two with 200+ runs. Many cricket fans recall their devastating performance against Gujarat Lions in 2016 where the batters were involved in 229-run partnerships and how they destroyed the opposition squad was a delight to witness.

Considering that AB scored 313 runs in 2021 and had three half-centuries, his season was below average. AB de Villiers didn’t play in the 2022 edition, but Virat and AB have said that he would play for RCB again in the 2023 edition, which will be a huge boost for the team.
