We are privileged to be out there with an absolute legend like you – AB de Villiers praises Virat

AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are close friends since they came together for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. As Virat Kohli is all set to play his 200th game for the franchise, the former South Africa player has praised his IPL skipper.

“Congratulations for your 200th game for RCB. It’s a wonderful achievement and we are very privileged to be out there with you when you go out for your 200th game. We will celebrate you because you are an absolute legend for this team. We don’t always tell you that but we really appreciate everything you do for this team,” he said.

Virat is the only player to play for one franchise since the inception of the league in 2008. Virat is also the highest run-scorer in the competition with more than 6000 runs under his belt.

The 32-year old will be stepping down from the post of RCB captain after the conclusion of the ongoing Indian Premier League. However, he will continue to represent the franchise till his last match in the competition.
