3. Kris Srikkanth lauds Mr.360 AB de Villiers
I think that was a major mistake by @RishabhPant17 to not finish @MishiAmit earlier in the innings! @ABdeVilliers17 just proved once again mistakes like that will cost you in a big way! Brilliant knock by 360 yet again! #DCvRCB

Another good game between two qualities teams #RCBvsDC wonder if Pant could have taken a single and given Hetmyer the last two balls to hit 11 runs, given that he had already hit four 6’s!!
