RCB's star batsman, AB de Villiers, is excited for the upcoming match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai. This is going to be Bangalore's second match of the tournament. Just like last year in UAE, and several seasons before that, AB de Villiers once again helped RCB to win their opening match against Mumbai Indians with his sublime 27-ball 48. Ahead of the big encounter, batting legend AB de Villiers has opened up on the Orange Army. AB de Villiers pointed out that he has always enjoyed playing against the Hyderabad-based franchise. The Proteas batsman also stated that SRH has a nice bowling attack. AB de Villiers was quick to add that SRH bowlers are proficient and smart. The side can be dangerous if allowed to get back in the game.
