But putting all those rumours to rest, De Villiers has also joined the Bengaluru-based franchise, ahead of IPL 2017.

But, De Villiers will miss the IPL opener on Wednesday (April 5), when RCB take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Hyderabad. Also, the franchise is hoping that ABD will be available for their second match against Delhi Daredevils at home on April 8.
