AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are not just the two batsmen of their generation, but also great friends. Their legendary friendship has been formed by playing together for 10 years in the IPL representing RCB. The duo have shared some iconic partnerships on the field and recently got talking in a freewheeling chat with each other on Instagram.
The camaraderie and mateship was at full disposal for everyone to see and it was heartening to see two champions of the sport sharing such a great relationship with each other, bereft of any ego. However, this wasn’t always the case and AB de Villiers remembered their first meeting.
Mr 360 said that he didn’t fully trust Virat Kohli after their first meeting as he had heard a lot about the Delhite. “It’s a human thing to sort of put a bit of defence around you. I remember walking up that tunnel, I remember saying ‘Hi’ but the defences were on like I don’t quite trust this guy yet, I’ve heard a lot about him, I’ve seen the hair, I’ve seen the style but I’m not convinced,” De Villiers added.
