IPL 2016, RCB vs KXIP: Virat Kohli & Co need AB de Villiers to rediscover form against Kings XI Punjab

New Delhi: Without a doubt, AB de Villiers is the most skillful batsman of modern-day cricket. With incredible strokes in his repertoire, the South African is a nightmare for the best of bowlers.

But in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have missed one of the great knocks from the maverick right-hander in the last few matches.

While skipper Virat Kohli has been unstoppable at the top of the order, AB has failed to live up to the expectations lately, where he has scored just 72 runs in last four matches.

The 32-year-old had a great start to the tournament where he hit three fifties in the first four matches he played.

However, as RCB find themselves in a spot of bother at the seventh position in the points table, Kohli, and the entire team management would want the South African to unleash one of his better knocks against Murali Vijay-led Kings XI Punjab today.
