Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers will once again be seen in action after a very long time as the Dream11 IPL 2020 is only a couple of days away. The 13th edition of the league holds tons of significance for the ardent cricket fans after the league was postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dream11 IPL 2020 will also cause fans having the ability to ascertain their favourites and other star players on the sector after a long time. De Villiers will once again represent the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and hope to inspire them to their maiden IPL title. The Virat Kohli-led camp has struggled in their previous couple of seasons but are going to be wanting to revamp as they need a robust and balanced playing XI for this year’s tournament.
Ahead of the Dream11 IPL 2020, the 36-year-old former South African captain named a teammate who has got a similar playing style as him.
AB de Villiers praised Aussie batsman Josh Philippe, who was roped in by RCB last year.
During a video on Royal Challengers Bangalore’s official App, the hard-hitting batsman said, “We are going to have some world-class players for this edition, we’ll have Finch, Moeen Ali, Adam Zampa and Josh Philippe. I am looking forward to connecting with Josh as I see tons of similarities between the way he plays back when I was younger. I watched him play for the Sydney Sixers in BBL, he takes on the new ball bowler, he is a really talented player. I even have heard Adam Gilchrist say real good things about him”.
It will be interesting to ascertain if Phillipe Josh gets to feature in RCB’s playing XI, who have already got quite few foreign stars like de Villiers, Finch, Chris Morris, Dale Steyn, Moeen Ali, Adam Zampa and many more.
RCB open their Dream11 IPL 2020 campaign against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on September 21.
