Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers are very good friends and playing with each other in the Indian premier league for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Recently, Virat Kohli celebrated his 31st birthday, so AB De Villiers gave him the birthday wishes and also said that Kohli is a great leader, he leads the team form front.
Speaking to timesnownews.com, AB De Villiers said, “He is very fortunate to have a lot of talent there – players who have a lot of experience, who have played a lot of IPL games under the most intense pressure before. He is blessed with that but also he is a lead from the front kind of a leader. And that’s always good from a captain when a guy goes out there and scores the big hundreds. He just doesn’t only talk but walks the talk as well. That’s the kind of a leader Virat is. He leads from the front with his body language.”
“We are very good friends. We always stay in touch and we get along really well. I have always been a big fan of the way he plays the game. After the SA series, I didn’t have a choice but to congratulate him as he scored so many runs and had a fantastic series, unfortunately against us. That’s the last I spoke to him. Then I warned him as well that when he is going to next come here, it’s not going to happen again (laughs),” de Villiers added.
AB De Villiers will play in Mzansi Super League for Tshwane Spartans that will start from November 08 while Virat Kohli is taking rest from cricket but He will join the team before the test series against Bangladesh.
