AB de Villiers (IPL Twitter)
‘Mr. 360’, as he is affectionately known by followers of the Indian Premier League (IPL), blasted a quite stunning 55* (22) to catapult the Royal Challengers Bangalore to an unlikely final over victory against the Rajasthan Royals in Dubai.
Bangalore were seemingly buried with too much left to do in their chase, but De Villiers – for the second time in a few days – played an innings that had commentators and fans around the world awe-struck.
De Villiers is still potentially available for the Proteas in T20 cricket and, based on what we are seeing at IPL 2020, he still has plenty to offer.
After his match-winning effort, De Villiers was showered with praise by the international cricket community on social media.
