They both have a great mutual respect for each other, yet that is true. AB de Villiers has termed Virat Kohli a great player, who has a very good heart as well.
In a press conference de Villiers said following for Virat Kohli:
“My take on him (Kohli) is quite simple, really. He’s a world-class player. I know him really well. We’ve played together quite a few years at Bangalore. I respect him even more off the field. Just a good guy with a good heart. I love the way he plays cricket.”
de Villiers also termed Kohli as a very competitive player. He said that eh always likes to dominate the opposition team. He said that Kohli is unstoppable when he gets going.
de Villiers said that their team plan is to get Kohli out first as he is a player who can take the game away
