IPL 2020: AB de Villiers stars as Team Chahal beats Team Kohli in RCB’s intra-squad practice match

Royal Challengers Bangalore organized an intra-squad match for the tune-up to the 13th edition of IPLwhere they will face SunRisers Hyderabad in their first game on September 21. The RCB players were divided among two teams led by skipper Virat Kohli and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. In the exciting clash, AB de Villiers was the star with the bat for Team Chahal in the victory over Team Kohli.

RCB Directer of cricket Mike Hesson said they divided the teams on the basis of match-ups to provide balance in both squads in the terms of left-right batting combinations or spinners with different variations. Team Chahal had the likes of Devdutt  Padikkal, Umesh Yadav and Navdeep Saini alongside De Villiers in the squad. While, Kohli’s team had Isuru Udana, Chris Morris, Parthiv Patel and Mohammed Siraj as the key players.
