The names of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers stand tall as the two most iconic batsmen of the modern day cricket. It is an absolute delight for the cricket fans to see Virat and AB bat together in the IPL. They form the core of the Royal Challengers Bangalore lineup in the tournament. Also, it is heartening to see the amount of respect the two players have for one another.

In the most recent encounter of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, AB de Villiers stunned everyone with a screamer on the boundary ropes. He took an improbable catch to dismiss Alex Hales in the game. After the game, the RCB skipper Virat Kohli hailed the catch as ‘spiderman’stuff.

“That was Spiderman stuff. You don’t do that as normal human beings. I thought it was going for a six but he pulled it off, then the jump and then the balance. I mean he can do freakish things but I am used to it now. His shots still leave me in awe but his fielding I am pretty used to now,” Virat Kohli had remarked after the game.

Virat Kohli reiterated the same and took to his social media handles to post another update on the same. He posted a picture of a flying AB de Villiers and captioned him as Spider Man again.  “Saw #SpiderMan Live today! @abdevilliers17 #RCBvsSRH #IPL2018,” Virat Kohli wrote in his social media update.

AB was quick to see the post and responded with a comment that read, ‘Oh biscuit’. The fans wondered what that meant. Well, earlier, AB had remarked that he likes to share nicknames with Virat. Hence, they often keep each other going strong with such nicknames that act as pep talks for them.

“There has never been any kind of rivalry between us because we have grown to understand and respect each other. ‘Come on, you little biscuit.’ ‘OK, let’s play, you little beauty.’ Virat and I share a liking for nicknames, and we have become very tight over all these years,” AB de Villiers had quoted.
