AB de Villiers is not only one of the best batsmen of all-time but he’s equally a wonderful fielder. The swashbuckling batsman stunned everyone by grabbing a one-handed stunner during RCB’s win against SRH yesterday.
While everyone were left awestruck, the team’s captain Virat Kohli, could not believe his eyes at ABD’s Superman clubbed into Spiderman-like adventures near the boundary rope to help Moeen Ali dismiss Alex Hales.
When he was asked about AB de Villiers stunner, Kohli said, “That was Spiderman stuff (about ABD’s catch). You don’t do that as normal human beings. I thought it was going for a six but he pulled it off. I thought it was going for a six, but he pulls it out, then the jump and then the balance. I mean he can do freakish things but I am used to it now. His shots still leave me in awe but his fielding I am pretty used to now.”
Kohli later took to Twitter to laud his RCB teammate and one of the legends of the game.

The win was very crucial to RCB’s to qualify for the playoffs. This victory took RCB to 12 points with one match remaining. RCB are placed fifth in the IPL Points Table, equal on points with fourth-placed Mumbai Indians, sixth-placed Rajasthan Royals and seventh-placed Kings XI Punjab.
If RCB wins their final match against Rajasthan Royals, they will need Kolkata Knight Riders to lose to make to the top four. The best scenario for RCB will be if Mumbai Indians also lose, but in the event, they win, then RCB will need a big win over Rajasthan to better MI’s net run-rate.
If Kings XI Punjab manages to beat Chennai Super Kings in their final match, they will need to do so by a massive margin to try and overhaul RCB’s net run-rate.
