Royal Challengers Bangalore have turned their IPL 2018 season around with three wins in their last three matches to put themselves in contention for the final two spots of playoffs.

Much of the credit should go to the batting greatness of RCB’s two biggest superstars AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. RCB recently defeated SRH in a must-win encounter in their last home match. During the match, AB de Villiers left everyone speechless with a brilliant one-handed catch at the boundary.

Virat Kohli couldn’t contain his excitement at the catch and exclaimed, “That was Spiderman stuff. You don’t do that as normal human beings. I thought it was going for a six but he pulled it off, then the jump and then the balance. I mean he can do freakish things but I am used to it now. His shots still leave me in awe but his fielding I am pretty used to now.

Virat even put up a picture of AB de Villiers jumping in the air to complete that amazing catch with the caption on Instagram. Virat wrote “Saw #SpiderMan Live today! @abdevilliers17 #RCBvsSRH #IPL2018

De Villiers saw the post and replied with “OH Biscuit”. Many fans would wonder what did the comment meant. It is nothing but good-natured ribbing between two geniuses of the game.

There has never been any kind of rivalry between us because we have grown to understand and respect each other. ‘Come on, you little biscuit.’ ‘OK, let’s play, you little beauty.’ Virat and I share a liking for nicknames, and we have become very tight over all these years,” AB de Villiers had quoted.
