Royal Challengers Bangalore’s key player AB de Villiers is one of the most popular cricketers in India. The South African even expressed his love for India and the crowd in several media interviews. He even termed India as his second home.
On May 17, ABD again showed his love for Indian fans as he broke the security cover to hand over his man-of-the-match-award to one of his fans after the Indian Premier League 2018 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
RCB, however, won the must-win game against SRH to keep the playoffs hope alive. Asked to bat first, RCB set a mammoth total of 218 for SRH, thanks to ABD and Moeen Ali’s breezy half centuries.
ABD was adjudged man of the match for his 69-run from 39 balls and also for his superb one-handed catch at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
After winning the award, ABD was later seen breaking the security cover to meet his fans where he handed over his match accolade to a fan. ABD’s unique gesture was captured on cam, which RCB shared it on their official twitter handle.
