New Delhi. Recently, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir expressed concern about AB de Villiers that he has not played the match for a long time. Under such circumstances, he will be under pressure in the second round of IPL 2021 starting September 19. This concern of Gambhir made the fans think now. But soon after, de Villiers said he did not come under pressure and did not give up when the bat came into his hands.
In the practice match, he showed that he doesn’t need too much practice to push the bowlers, he just needs the bat. In the first practice of Royal Challengers Bangalore led by Virat Kohli, he scored a century off 46 balls while creating noise. His performance has also caused panic among opponents.
Such was the performance of the rest of the RCB batsmen
De Villiers was playing the match after a long break of almost months. At one point in the practice match, he was playing 19 off 19 balls. He then showed his old guess and scored 104 off 46 balls. In his stormy innings, he hit just 10 sixes and scored 0 runs. He also hit 7 fours.
