“At the outset, let me say I am a team man. If the coach and captain agree a strategy, I am not going to second guess them. I will always support them. That’s the way successful teams function,” De Villiers said as quoted by News18.

“At that precise moment, I was asked to wait because the coach and captain had decided to send out left-handers to face the two KXIP leg-spinners, who were bowling at the time. That was a legitimate cricketing decision. Teams all around the world often prefer left-handed batsmen to face leg-spin bowling.

I did not question the call at the time it was made, and I do not question the call now. There is absolutely no problem from my side. For my part, I am eager and willing to bat wherever and whenever the team needs me, and to help RCB advance our campaign to realise our potential and win this league,” he added.
