AB de Villiers opens up about personal details in a conversation with Jemimah Rodrigues

The second leg of the Indian Premier League 2021 hasn’t started off with the best of starts for AB de Villiers and his Royal Challengers Bangalore, but the South African great is certain that his team will win the coveted IPL title this season. In an interview with Indian cricketer Jemimah Rodrigues on the show ‘Dream11 Dil Ya Dimaag,’ de Villiers said that he preferred his franchise over Manchester United and that M Chinnaswamy Stadium was preferable to Supersport Park in terms of the stadium.

De Villiers responded positively when Rodrigues placed him in a difficult situation, asking him to choose between the Red Devils winning their first Premier League championship in 2012 and RCB winning their first-ever IPL trophy. “We are ready to win that IPL Trophy,” the South African remarked. Notably, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have yet to experience victory in the Indian Premier League, despite having qualified for the final three times (2009, 2011 and 2016).

The question was posed to De Villiers, who responded with a slap on the back when asked which venue he liked scoring runs the best. De Villiers stated that his favourite place to play cricket in the Chinnaswamy Stadium. “I do not play international cricket anymore. So, when I come to the Chinnaswamy and put my RCB jersey on, there is nothing that beats that,” said de Villiers, whose team will face the Chennai Super Kings in a match tonight in Sharjah.

Despite the fact that he has retired from international cricket, de Villiers chose himself over Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli when asked who he would choose to hit 20 runs off the last over. The Proteas captain, on the other hand, put his emotions on his sleeve when Rodrigues challenged him to travel back in time and win one game between the 2015 World Cup Semifinal and the 2016 IPL Final. “The World Cup is something that I’ve dreamed of since I was a child.” It was my first dream as a child when I was a little kid and first learned to play cricket.”

De Villiers represented South Africa in 114 Tests, 228 One-Day Internationals, and 78 Twenty20 Internationals, accumulating 8765, 9577, and 1672 runs in those formats, with 47 centuries and 109 half-centuries. Despite having declared his retirement from all forms of cricket in May 2018, the 37-year-old is currently involved in the Indian Premier League. De Villiers has scored 5056 runs at a strike rate of 152.34 in 177 IPL matches, with three 100s and 40 half-centuries.

The following is the transcript of the whole discussion between Jemimah Rodrigues and AB de Villiers:

IPL 2021 (Phase 2): Hasaranga is the new Addition for RCB

Finally, on September 19, we will be witnessing the much awaited IPL phase 2 in the UAE. IPL’s schedule has been released, with a few surprises.

Post-pandemic, all sports tournaments that were either halted or delayed have resumed. However, many schedules of several events also appear to overlap. Players as well as the organizing committee face challenges.

In a very short time, the IPL and the T20 world cup will follow each other. This has led to a widespread dilemma among the players. When you have to sacrifice one for the other, it is definitely a critical decision.

As a result, the most talked-about team of the IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore, is currently facing difficulties. RCB appears to be losing players at a crucial time, mostly Aussies, despite leading the points table. Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, and Adam Zampa are not listed for the RCB.

With 3 Australian players not taking part in the second phase of IPL, Hasaranga is the new addition for RCB.

Aussies cite personal reasons, while we know that most may be anticipating bio-bubble fatigue, while others believe they might be preparing for the world cup.

RCB has signed spin sensation Wanidu Hasaranga in the place of Zampa, some days ago. Hasaranga has excellent bowling figures and his addition will strengthen the bowling attack.

Asked about Hasaranga’s reaction, he says that he is both excited and honored to be a part of this team. However, we have also learned another interesting fact about this young man.

He posted several old posts with pictures of Indian captain Virat Kohli. This affirms that he loves the skipper. Kohli fans were thrilled to learn this and took to Twitter to share their excitement.

Watch Hasaranga’s old tweets here:

As of 2016, Hasaranga was among Kohli’s fans. Hasaranga wrote these two posts in 2016. He appreciated Kohli’s accomplishments in both of these.

Kohli is referred to as a hero in one of the IPL editions in which he scores the most runs. He was named the man of the tournament as a result. Virat wears the Indian team jersey in another post praising the skipper.

One of the largest fan bases in the world belongs to Virat Kohli. The result is that RCB is the most talked-about team despite its poor performances and trophy droughts. It is an entirely different experience to have a fan play for his dream captain within the squad itself.

Virat’s bowling woes will be eased by Hasaranga’s addition. Additionally, it would be interesting to know who will replace Zampa’s other Australian counterparts. We will have to wait until the final reveal of the squad.

Milind Kumar will Play Minor League Cricket in the United States After Retiring from Indian Cricket

Indian cricketer Milind Kumar, a former player of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals (then Daredevils) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has retired. The Philadelphians will represent him after he retires from the Major League Cricket in the USA.

In following in the footsteps of Unmukt Chand, the 30-year-old cricketer relocated to the United States after retiring from Indian cricket. Before Chand, Siddarth Trivedi, Harmeet Singh, and Smit Patel had also joined the MLC. Interestingly, both played for the Rajasthan Royals team.

According to BCCI’s rule, a player (male) cannot take part in other leagues in world cricket if he hasn’t retired from Indian cricket. “Yes, I’ve informed the BCCI of my decision to retire from cricket in India. I enjoyed playing for Delhi with great players like Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ishant Sharma, and it’s time to move on,” Milind Kumar told Times of India.

In the 2018-19 Ranji Trophy season, Kumar scored over 1000 runs, also played for the Delhi team in the 2014 IPL season, and was with the Bangalore team in the 2019 season. The IPL, however, did not give him the opportunity to debut.

He has represented Delhi, Sikkim and Tripura in domestic cricket, scoring 2988 runs at 46.68 with nine centuries and 15 half-centuries. Twenty-three List-A runs at 43.04 and 1176 T20 runs at 29.40.

Delhi defeated England in a practice match in 2013 when he scored 78* off 85. He played for the Board President’s XI against New Zealand in 2017. Now that he has left the BCCI, Milind Kumar can play in other franchise leagues. In addition to Smit Patel, who left Indian cricket earlier this year, the Barbados Tridents have selected him to play in this year’s Caribbean Premier League.
