In the 28th match of the 13th season (IPL 2020) of the Indian Premier League, the team of Royal Challengers Bangalore registered a stunning 82-run win against the Kolkata Knight Riders. In this win of RCB, AB de Villiers played a big role, who played 73 runs in just 33 balls. De Villiers hit more sixes than fours during this innings. Batting against KKR, ABD hit 5 fours and 6 long sixes, during which they also sent the ball outside the stadium twice. Meanwhile, a six from de Villiers also caused traffic jams on the roads of Sharjah.
In fact, the incident happened in the 16th over of the innings when KKR pacer Kamlesh Nagerkoti threw the fourth ball of the over into the de Villiers’ range, at which AB hit a strong shot and hit the ball outside the stadium. This de Villiers ball started going out in a car going on the road, due to which the road got jammed for a while. De Villiers once again carried the ball outside the stadium in a similar manner. The video of this six of De Villiers is getting viral on social media.
