Former South Africa captain and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star AB de Villiers penned an emotional message for his dear friend and superstar Virat Kohli on the latter’s 34th birthday.

Notably, De Villiers is currently in Bangalore while Kohli is representing Team India down under at the T20 World Cup. In a video shared by the RCB’s official Twitter handle, De Villiers can be heard heaping praise on Kohli as a cricketer and as a human being.

“Hello V, my biscuit. I hope you are doing well. I am currently in Bangalore. It’s quite ironic because I am sitting here and sending this message just to wish you a happy birthday on the fifth of November. I hope you have a fantastic day. You are one hell of a cricket player. But you are a much better human being. Thank you very much for your friendship. Thanks for being a great teammate and just a great man overall,” said De Villiers.

De Villiers also wished Kohli good luck for the remainder of the ongoing T20 World Cup and hoped the Men in Blue would play the final against South Africa.

“Happy birthday, my bud, and all the very best with the World Cup to you and the whole Indian team. I really hope you go all the way and have fun. Maybe you find South Africa in the final. It will be very entertaining. But happy birthday, Virri, have a great day, and I am thinking of you. Cheers!,” added De Villiers.

Both De Villiers and Kohli have been batting phenoms in the Indian Premier League (IPL). While De Villiers has over 5000 runs to his name in 184 games at a strike rate of 151.69, including three hundreds and 40 half-centuries, Kohli has over 6000 runs in 223 matches at a strike rate of 129, including five centuries and 44 fifties.
