The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is going on with a full swing, and different players from all eight franchises are showing plenty of performances for their respective teams.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), despite having a huge fan following, have never made it to the IPL title. This season, the confidence looks new as they rank third on the table, winning four out of seven matches. The batting sensation from South Africa, AB De Villiers, who is known to combine forces with skipper Virat Kohli to add runs in every season for the side, is performing extensively.
His last knock against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was lauded with praises as he smashed 73 runs off 33 balls. The inning was termed as unreal, and he received a man of the match award for this either. Notably, he is the second player in the IPL 2020 with a high batting average of 185.36 after Kieron Pollard, who averages 189.13.
Ravi Shastri, the head coach of the Indian Cricket Team, believes that it is the right time for De Villiers to come out of his retirement as he has a huge potential to run for his nation.
Notably, he retired back in May 2018 from all forms of cricket, and it was a big shock to South Africa. He also has captained his team in all three formats.
IPL 2020: Should AB De Villiers come out of retirement after his performances for RCB?
“Now, that the penny has dropped. What one saw last night was unreal. And the feeling is the same waking up. @ABdeVilliers17, the game in these trying times or otherwise needs you back in the international arena and out of retirement. The game will be better off.”
