“The most special thing about sport is the friendship and mutual respect you share with your teammates along your journey. Sport is beautiful,” wrote the RCB skipper on Instagram.
Meanwhile, the photo that Kohli shared is after the nail-biting win against Mumbai Indians in the super over. The two legendary batsmen took RCB home in a tense clash. The shutterbugs made sure to capture the special flashes between Kohli and de Villiers which overwhelmed all their devotees.
Kohli and de Villiers have always had great admiration for each other’s game. The Indian captain often admits that ABD is by far the most skilful player he has ever seen whereas the South African rates his good friend as one of the all-time great batsmen.
In a recent interview, Kohli revealed that he calls De Villiers ‘biscuit’ on the other hand he is referred to as ‘biscotti’.
Furthermore, the two great cricketers still haven’t been able to lift the elusive IPL trophy. Each year aficionados wish that both Kohli and de Villiers lift the trophy of the biggest T20 league in the world. RCB this year has started well and this might be the season when the long wait for both finally ends.
