There is a little denying in the fact that AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are the best of friends. It all started in 2011 when de Villiers was roped in by IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kohli was already the team’s skipper. The two hit it off soon and their friendship has only grown stronger with the passage of time. In the last few years, the two have never hidden their admiration and respect for each other. Whenever the two are interviewed, they always call each other the best in the world.
Once again, De Villiers has revealed some interesting about Virat and Anushka Sharma during his interview with Gaurav Kapur for ‘Breakfast with Champions’. The former South Africa skipper said that Virat and Anushka were his neighbors in the team hotel at the IPL this year.
“We are neighbours. If it wasn’t for the mosquitoes here, we would’ve left our doors open and probably would’ve shared a big room. Anushka’s here all the time, my family is there, the kids are running around. The kids were knocking on his door, early in the morning waking him up. He would let them in and would have coffee together. They were so good with the kids. We spent hours in the pool together, everyone just jumping and diving, and they’re so chilled,” said De Villiers.
De Villiers scared of saying anything to Virat
De Villiers further revealed just how caring Virat is which has made him scared of telling the India skipper about anything. The Proteas veteran revealed how Virat arranges everything for him.
“I’m scared of saying anything to him now because. If I say like, “Oh, I like your shoes.” The next minute he organizes me those shoes. I’m like, “Virat, just stop it”. He looks after everyone. I was like, “My phone is flat again.” “Oh, you need a power bank.”
There you go. Now it’s mine. He’s ridiculous, man. I told him I like coffee the other day. Now I’m getting an espresso machine – he’s ordered on Amazon. It’s being delivered tomorrow,” said de Villiers.
