Some of the game’s greatest current and former players were once again lost for words after AB de Villiers provided another spectacle in the IPL on Saturday.
The former Proteas skipper struck 55 off 22 deliveries to guide the Royal Challengers Bangalore over the line in an important clash against the Rajasthan Royals.
Afterwards Twitter and Instagram exploded as the cricketing world once again paid tribute to the brilliance of De Villiers.
‘#ABD is a freak,’ wrote Tom Moody on his Twitter account, while England batsman Liam Livingstone said ‘De Villiers is the goat end of story!’
Here are some of the best reactions:
