IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star batsman AB de Villiers put on a show against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday in Sharjah. He came to the crease in the 14th over of the innings and went on to score 73* from just 33 balls. His knock included five fours and six sixes. RCB posted a huge total of 194 runs on the board due to his innings.
His two sixes went out of the stadium and struck a moving car on the road. That led to the traffic on the road getting stopped. A small kid picked up the ball which AB de Villiers had smacked out of the ground.

The video of that De Villiers’ six has gone viral and his Proteas teammate Kagiso Rabada, who is playing for the Delhi Capitals also heard of the news. He wrote on Twitter and asked if AB de Villiers has now started hitting cars while playing cricket. “@ABdeVilliers17 you hitting cars now?!” his tweet read.
Kagiso Rabada’s Tweet:
IPL 2020: RCB registered a comfortable victory.
RCB defended their huge total with ease. KKR never got going during the chase. They could only manage to score 112 runs in their 20 overs. Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal delivered a superb spell in the slow pitch and picked up 3 wickets in their quota of 8 overs. They conceded only 32 runs.
AB de Villiers was also active on the field with skipper Virat Kohli. He rightly won the Man Of The Match award. RCB have now climbed to the third spot in the points table with five wins in seven games. Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals are ahead of them, who also have won five matches. (IPL 2020)
