Finally some moments of relief for South African batting dynamo AB De Villiers who has hit his first major score of the IPL 2016. Before this game against Gujarat Lions, AB was not amongst the scores at all. He was out of form and desperately needed runs.
Today he looked absolutely good. The rustiness was all gone and he was all over the place. Gujarat Lions is not a weak side at all. In fact, this team who is playing its first IPL has impressed a huge audience with their exceptions in the batting and bowling.
Today they came under the wrath of AB. There was nothing the GL bowlers could do against Kohli and AB who both scored hundreds.
AB when walked into the middle, he knew what he has to offer and it was to attack the GL bowlers straight away. He was excellent on both sides of the wicket and the way he scored his runs on the off-side was absolutely remarkable.
AB scored his most runs on the off side towards covers and then on the leg side in between deep square leg and long on. This was his zone today. He was onto the ball very quickly. This was what gave him this massive innings.With 12 huge sixes, Ab was one a carnage. He timed each shot perfectly. The way he swept the ball was something which should the youngster learn. This was an ideal knock for the RCB as well. his team is not firing up and today they all will be glad.
