IPL 2016

XtraTime Web Desk: Legendary South African batsman AB de Villiers heaped praise on his Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli as he termed him as a “great guy and a great captain”.

On being asked about his chemistry on the field with Kohli, De Villiers said,”Fantastic. He’s (Virat) a great guy and I love playing with him. He’s become a great captain and an even better friend. So it’s been great. He’s always been an inspirational character and we have a few leaders in the team that carry the guys in the tough time. We just want to look ahead and try to get better.”

De Villiers was in Mumbai for a promotional event where he opened up about these things.

“No I am batting very well. I am very very happy. Rashid got me out previously. We haven’t played a lot against each other but he bowled well and he’s a very good bowler. I have a lot of respect for him,” added De Villiers.

He admitted that Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are on the sixth spot, haven’t played well and need to focus on the next games.

“No we haven’t played well. It’s been very disappointing but four games are left and I would love to not live in the past much and focus on what’s coming that is Delhi (against Delhi Daredevils), so we need to win that game and hopefully have a bit of our run by the end of the season,” De Villiers signed off.
