NEW DELHI: Having been an integral part of Royal Challengers Bangalore for over the years, legendary South Africa batter AB de Villiers cheered his team from the stands in their IPL 2023 opening match against Mumbai Indians at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.
De Villiers took to Instagram to share a picture of him attending the match. “Quiet before the storm! RCB vs MI. What an incredible atmosphere,” said de Villiers’ Instagram post caption.
