IPL 2020: The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had to suffer the wrath of AB de Villiers in Sharjah on Monday. De Villiers came to the crease at number 4 when RCB needed to accelerate. KKR bowlers had tied up the RCB batsman to that point, and it was expected that they will restrict RCB to a below-par total. However, Mr. 360 had other plans, as he smashed the KKR bowlers all around the park.
AB de Villiers hit six huge sixes during his carnage, and two of them went out of the stadium. The ball hit one of the moving vehicles on the roads in Sharjah. When Kamlesh Nagarkoti was bowling in the 16th over, this incident happened.

In that over, De Villiers was looking to hit every ball for a maximum. Nagarkoti ended up bowling the fourth ball of the over in the slot for de Villiers, and he smacked it into the stands. The ball travelled out of the stadium and struck one of the moving vehicles, leading to a traffic halt in Sharjah. (IPL 2020)
IPL 2020: AB de Villiers put on a show in Sharjah against KKR.
That was just the beginning of the AB de Villiers carnage. He smashed every bowler out of the park, including the likes of Pat Cummins and Andre Russell. Mr. 360 scored his fifty in just 23 balls and comfortably outscored his captain Virat Kohli. Both of them stitched together a 99 runs partnership for the third wicket.
De Villiers played an incredible knock of 73* off just 33 balls which included five fours and six huge maximums. On the other end, Kohli scored a sedate 33 off 28 deliveries with only a single four. Kohli had no pressure on his shoulders, as De Villiers pulled out his beast mode. (IPL 2020)
