VIDEO: AB de Villiers smashing Dale Steyn for 23 runs in One Over: AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn, who made their Test debuts together were the most respected batsman and bowler respectively at that moment. They share the best of friendship on and off the field but it was that day in IPL which made two national teammates go against each other for the first time in a recognized cricket league. AB de Villiers evolved as the clear winner after he took apart the most dreaded fast bowler in the world then, Dale Steyn in an unprecedented batting blitz.
It was a tensed moment in the IPL 5 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Deccan Chargers when RCB required 39 runs off the last 18 balls in their chase of 182 and Steyn came in to bowl the 18th over. From the first ball itself, AB took the charge on the mighty Steyn, who conceded only 7 runs in 2 overs before. There was nothing Steyn could do to stop Villiers and the superhuman smashed Steyn for 23 runs, even the yorkers were whacked for runs.
