As the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) will be in the full swing by 19th September, the players also eager to show their performances for their respective franchises. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s batting sensation and wicketkeeping irregular lad, AB De Villiers said that he can bowl an over or two.
In an exclusive interview, he revealed sarcastically that he has told Kohli if he needs him (Villiers) as a bowler, he can do that too. He is not a bowler although but will enjoy rendering his services in this department as well.
The player also discussed the weather hurdles team will have to face. He believes that the quality game will be witnessed but the humidity at Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai will be disturbing for the participants.
AB De Villiers: If Kohli needs me with the ball in IPL 2020, I will do that
“I’ve always joked with Virat (Kohli) and I told him two nights ago, ‘If you need me with the ball in hand, I’ll be there’. I’ve never been a great bowler but I love toying around and keeping things fresh out there,” AB said in an episode of the ‘Bold Dairies’.
“I’m not used to these conditions, and it reminds me of a Test we played in July in Chennai. Viru (Virender Sehwag) scored a hundred, and the humidity is similar to that. It seems to be getting better. It’ll definitely play a part, and it’s important to save that energy for the last part of innings,” the Proteas cricketer said.
