It's difficult to not be a Virat Kohli fan. All you need to do is watch him bat.
And AB de Villiers is the latest member in the Indian captain’s fan club. Showing massive respect for Kohli, ABD called him “a force of nature at the crease” in his column for a leading daily.
Kohli had praised ABD for forging a mammoth partnership during the match against Delhi Daredevils. Soon after, ABD also had words of praise for his captain, thanking him for helping him bat in a better fashion out in the middle.
"He is so skillful and determined, a force of nature at crease, and, ball by ball, he helped me get back into the game, until I could start to make a contribution, playing my part as we reached our target with an over to spare," he wrote.
Further praising Kohli’s ability as a batsman, he wrote, "I battled at first, struggling to find my timing; it has been hard to regain my rhythm after falling ill and missing a couple of matches, but it was great to see Virat driving the ball for six over extra cover and then whipping another maximum over mid-wicket."
RCB won their match against Delhi Daredevils by a five-wicket margin. They next face Kings XI Punjab tonight.
