AB De Villiers reveals his first impression of Virat Kohli

Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers revealed his first impression about Virat Kohli and said he did not get the right vibes from the Indian skipper when he first met him in the IPL.

Kohli and de Villiers gave an account of their friendship in an Instagram live session recently.

But the situation was not the same always. De Villiers in that same live session, revealed that he was skeptical about Kohli when he first met him.

“It’s an interesting story, it’s a very human thing to do when you hear about someone for a few years, I had heard a lot about you from Mark Boucher. I think you were 18-19 when you started playing for RCB and Boucher would tell me about you. I had known you for three years but had never met you,” the Protea cricketer was quoted as saying by DNA India.

“It’s a human thing to sort of put a bit of defence around you. I remember walking up that tunnel, I remember saying ‘Hi’ but the defences were on like I don’t quite trust this guy

yet, I’ve heard a lot about him, I’ve seen the hair, I’ve seen the style but I’m not convinced,” added de Villiers.

The duo also shares the top two highest partnerships ever in the IPL as they recorded an unbeaten 215-run stand against the Mumbai Indians in 2015 before they added 229 runs against the Gujarat Lions in the 2016 edition of the tournament.
