IPL 2018, RCBvCSK - 'He hits sixes for fun': Twitter on a high as AB de Villiers tonks CSK attack

Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) AB de Villiers was in the mood on Wednesday as he smashed the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) attack at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The South African walked on to the crease at the fall of his team's first wicket in skipper Virat Kohli. The score was 35 for 1 after 4.2 overs at that time and ABD had a serious task at hand.

De Villiers got together with compatriot Quinton de Kock to stitch a belligerent 103-run partnership for the second wicket. The duo hit a string of sixes to enthrall the Bengaluru crowd.


ABD was particularly severe against Shadul Thakur, tonking him for a hat-trick of sixes in the 13th over. He finished with 68 from 30, while De Kock perished for 53 from 37.

With De Villiers being adored by cricket fans around the world, Twitter reactions were inevitable.

Here are some tweets

Earlier, CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. His team were second in the Indian Premier League points table going into Wednesday's match, while RCB were placed in sixth position.
