• Warner hails AB as his ‘idol’

    Australia’s David Warner joined a chorus of praise for AB de Villiers after the South African superstar reached a notable milestone in the IPL on Tuesday.

    In yet another stunning batting display for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, De Villiers was not out on 75 off just 42, in an innings which included five sixes.

    It was a knock that took him to 5,000 runs in the IPL, becoming just the second overseas player to reach that milestone (after Warner).
