AB de Villiers lit up the Chinnaswamy Stadium with his trailblazing knock of 68 runs off just 30 deliveries against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He was in the mood to hit every bowler out of the park and surely would’ve scored the third century of this season if not for the clever variation from Imran Tahir which foxed him. Nevertheless, the South African had set his team off to a huge score and eventually they went to post 205 runs for the loss of 8 wickets after 20 overs.
He came out to bat early in the 5th over after the skipper Virat Kohli’s wicket had silenced the Stadium big time. But it didn’t take much time for De Villiers to get his eye in as he attacked Harbhajan Singh in the very next over only to smack him for a couple of sixes and a four. He had announced himself in the middle and even the worse was about to follow for the visitors.
Kohli reacts to ABD’s sixes
Imran Tahir was next in line as AB de Villiers hit one of his maximums out of the Stadium which went 111 metres long to become the longest six of the tournament. The real assault was yet to follow as Shardul Thakur faced the heat who had bowled 4 back-to-back dot balls to him at the start of his innings. ABD went on to hit 3 consecutive sixes to Thakur who kept on bowling slower deliveries in the 13th over. When this man hits the six, no matter which team you are supporting, you have to stand up and applaud.
The same happened to Virat Kohli after the third six which went over wide long-off as he got off his seat in awe of the Superman in the middle who was tearing apart the bowling attack. The reaction was worth watching even as everyone in the dugout were left nothing to do but to admire the batting masterclass of De Villiers.
