The bond of the boys from Bangalore team, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers has always been special. The two shared a great bond when they played together in the Indian T20 League. They developed a great friendship on the field and outside the field as well. Virat Kohli recently proved that their bond is very special.
Virat Kohli returned to play at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore after many years. He was welcomed by huge chants when he walked in to bat. At the same time, the Bangalore crowd also had AB de Villiers on their mind.
When India was bowling, the crowd started chanted of AB de Villiers' name. Virat Kohli, standing in the slip cordon, had the best reaction to this. He imitated a special shot from AB de Villiers' book, the switch shot. This made the fans go wild.
Here is the video that went viral:

In the recent developments for the Bangalore team, Faf du Plessis has been appointed as their captain for the 2022 season. The South African will lead a team for the first time in the ITL, but everyone has huge expectations from him. He has a great tactical mind for the game, which makes him the perfect candidate for the team.
While handing over the captaincy to Du Plessis, Virat had a special message for him. He said, "Few updates for you guys. Our season is going to start pretty soon something which I am excited for. As I said, renewed energy, really looking forward to this season. But the more important news, Faf is going to be our new captain. And I couldn’t be more happier to pass on the baton to a good friend, whom I’ve known very well over the years. We have been in touch for many years now and he is one of the few guys whom I’ve got to know outside of cricket."
