AB de Villiers Supports Virat Kohli Amidst The Captaincy Controversy

Although Virat and AB’s friendship is not hidden from anyone, but it always comes into the discussion when they play together and when they support together during their difficult times. This time also AB de Villiers has come out in support of the Indian Cricket Team Captain Virat Kohli, while he is facing the heat of critics because critics think that Virat Kohli’s captaincy is the main reason why the Indian Cricket Team didn’t win any championship titles under his captaincy.

In de Villier’s recent congratulations tweet for New Zealand, he also backed Virat Kohli’s and his team’s efforts. He hoped that Virat Kohli and his team will bounce back definitely.

This discussion came into the spotlight because he failed to win another ICC event, as the Indian cricket team lost the World Test Championship final against New Zealand by 8 wickets. Ever since the defeat, the Indian skipper has found himself at the receiving end of criticism and a debate over his captaincy has been going on in the cricket fraternity. Several Former Cricket Players are giving the same opinions.

Although both are very professional, but seeing these two on the field doesn’t seem like two big players are batting. It’s like two friends are playing. AB de Villiers with Virat Kohli playing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one of the most loved duos in the IPL. Both have a special record in their name that is the biggest partnership in the history of T20 is also recorded between the two and both have done wonders of scoring centuries in the same T20 match. Praising team India AB wrote:

“It was a pleasure watching the Test Championship final and I feel both teams did incredibly well to promote the format for what it really is, the ultimate test! Congrats @newzealandcrick with the win. Hard lines India, but I know @imVkohli and his men will bounce back.”

Below is the Tweet

AB de Villiers has opened up on his friendship with Virat Kohli many times publically. In his conversation with Pommie Mbangwa, the former Zimbabwe fast bowler who’s now a commentator, he claimed that his friendship with Virat Kohli is much deeper than just as a cricket player. He told that he has deep conversations not just with Kohli but also with his wife, Anushka Sharma, a renowned Bollywood actress.

It’s not the first time when de Villiers backed Virat Kohli’s captaincy. Even after RCB’s disqualification in IPL held last year in UAE disappoints everyone but de Villiers not only praised Virat Kohli’s Batting skills but also praised his captaincy. He praised Virat Kohli, saying that the RCB captain always leads the team from the front and sets an example for the young players.
