De Villiers said in a video shared by RCB on Twitter: “I think we have started something where we as a batting unit sort of felt something special and now the consistency and sustainability of that is important. If we do it two or three times we will start believing that. We almost can't fail that's the kind of position you want to be as a batting unit and as a team.”

He further added, “You want to get into the winning culture where you feel like what if I don't do it he is going to do it. If he doesn't do it then I'm doing it. You get this beautiful flow going in the team. We are few games away from that hopefully; we will keep going with the momentum.”

On being asked if having experienced players around the squad helps the youngsters, he said: “It helps everyone to know that there is a couple of experienced heads around. That's always a nice feeling.”

De Villiers signed off by saying, “Guys whether they are in good form or bad form they find a way to cross the line more often than not. Down the order as well a couple of guys who need some big balls even Harshal Patel finished the game the other night.”
