NEW DELHI – AB de Villiers has somehow made it a habit of being spectacular in whatever he does on a cricket field and the South African’s gravity-defying catch in Thursday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) match only added to his legend.
Bangalore captain Virat Kohli gushed at the presentation ceremony, “That was Spiderman stuff, you don’t do that as normal human beings,”
“I thought it was going for a six and then he pulls it out… He can do freakish things. I’m used to it now.”
Indian captain added, “His shots still leave me in awe, I’m pretty used to his fielding. That was fun to watch,” the India captain added.
Fellow South Africa and former Proteas batsman Jonty Rhodes called the catch “insane”, he praised the fielding from the team, but de Villiers was his modest self when describing the moment.
De Villiers said, “I made it look better than it was.”
TAKE A LOOK-
Is that a bird? Is that a plane?
