“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 defense around you. I remember walking up that tunnel, I remember saying ‘Hi’ but the defenses 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,” AB de Villiers further said in the Instagram live session with Virat Kohli.

The duo also shares the top two highest partnerships ever in the Indian Premier League (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.
