Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman AB de Villiers put on an exhibition on some clean hitting on Monday while batting against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He came out to bat in the 14th over of the innings and went on to slam 73* off just 33 deliveries with five fours and six sixes. RCB managed to post a huge total of 194 runs on the board thanks to his knock.
Rather two of De Villiers’ sixes went out of Sharjah stadium on the roads and ended up hitting one of the moving cars. It also led to the traffic on the road getting stopped as well. A small kid got the ball that came out after the former South African batsman smacked it out of the ground.
The video of the same has gone viral now and it seems Kagiso Rabada, who is featuring for the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the IPL, has also got the news. Soon he took to his official Twitter handle and asked AB de Villiers if he has started hitting cars now while playing cricket. “@ABdeVilliers17 you hitting cars now?!” his tweet read.
Here’s the tweet:
@ABdeVilliers17 you hitting cars now?! 🤣

RCB win the game comfortably
As far as the match is concerned, RCB managed to defend the mammoth total on the slow pitch comfortably. KKR batsmen were never in the chase as they could only reach 112 in their 20 overs. Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal bowled superbly with the pitch assisting them and ended up picking three wickets among themselves in eight overs while conceding only 32 runs.
AB de Villiers was spot on with his wicket-keeping as well and was actively involved in the decision-making along with the skipper Virat Kohli as well. It was no surprise that he won the Man of the Match award. RCB are currently at the third position in the points table with five wins in seven games. They are only below MI and DC at the moment who also have five wins to their name.
