“I’m going to be an RCBian for my life” – AB de Villiers

AB de Villiers, a true RCBian at heart forever 

When we talk about cricket, we talk about a gentleman’s game. How many cricketers across the globe have carried that torch for years and received overwhelming love from fans wherever they go? Perhaps, AB de Villiers and his fans can answer this question.

One of the strongest fanbase for any cricket franchise across the globe, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), have never been shy of showering their love for Mr. 360 degree. ABD, a part of the RCB setup since 2011, has been an integral part of the franchise. Although RCB might not have produced a title triumphant edition, love for the franchise and ABD has never abated amongst the fans.

One of the core players of Royal Challengers Bangalore, de Villiers has been involved in many memorable moments in the red clad for years. Be it batting, or fielding, the superman- as they call him, was never short of producing breath-taking moments.

In a video posted by Royal Challengers Bangalore, AB de Villiers talked about his love for the franchise. RCB wasn’t just a franchise, but was more of a family to him.

“I’m going to be an RCBian for life. Every single person in the RCB set-up has become family to me. People come & go, but the spirit & the love we have for each other at RCB will always remain. I’ve become half Indian now & I’m proud of that.” – said AB de Villiers in the video. 

Who will wear RCB’s captaincy hat next year?

After Virat Kohli relinquished his RCB’s captaincy duties earlier this year, it was quite inevitable that AB de Villiers might take over. But after ABD’s retirement from all forms of cricket, the question of RCB’s captaincy has been thrown in the open now.

With the IPL mega auctions lined-up for 2022, it will be interesting to see which player will the RCB management appoint as the captain.
