It was a good news for the Royal Challengers Bangalore that the Proteas hard-hitter AB de Villiers is back in the squad ahead of their third game at Holkar Stadium Indore against the Kings XI Punjab. The fans were excited to see the AB show yet another time in the IPL. And guess what, after a hectic Monday, it was a complete stress buster and Devilliers did what he was expected to do.
AB came into bat at number three in the second over of the game after skipper Shane Watson was dismissed shockingly. The fans jumped off out of excitement after seeing their hero back on the field. But on the other hand, the wickets kept on falling at regular intervals and the run rate was dipping over by over.
Despite Devilliers being present on the field, RCB seemed struggling to score runs. The fans were getting disappointed gradually as AB himself was playing very slow in the initial overs. But suddenly, the entire picture changed and it was Devillier’s miracle which was witnessed by the crowd.
For the first 28 balls, AB could score just 31 runs but the way he batted in the next 18 balls, it seemed as if had switched on his EA Sports mode. Having no mercy on the bowlers, he ripped off each one of them and smashed 58 runs in just 3 overs. The original AB was back by then and his 360-degree style of batting was seen once again. He hit a total of 9 sixes and only 3 fours and scored 89 runs. He was furiously phenomenal and ruined the Punjab bowling line-up and they fell down like a house of cards.
People all across India enjoyed his batting blast thoroughly and their thoughts just rocked the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
