IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore was knocked out in the eliminator. Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated RCB by 6 wickets. RCB lost the eliminator because of their poor batting. AB De Villiers was the only player who stood up alone against SRH in the eliminator and RCB could score a defended total.
AB De Villiers was proved himself as the best batsman of RCB in IPL 2020. He is the third-highest scorer for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Debutant Devdutt Padikkal scored the most runs for RCB in IPL 2020. But when we talk about strike rate and average, Ab De Villiers is far better than Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli.
Ab de Villiers has scored 454 runs in IPL 2020 with a strike rate of 158.74 while Devdutt Padikkal is 19 runs ahead of De Villiers and managed 473 runs with a strike rate of 124.80. Virat Kohli is the second in the list of highest run-scorer for RCB in IPL 2020.
RCB team was facing criticism from their die-hard fans after losing the eliminator match. On the other hand, a senior sports journalist Boria Majumdar blames Ab De Villiers for RCB’s exit from IPL 2020.
Boria Majumdar felt Ab de Villiers was not a match-winner player:
De Villiers is a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for 10 years. Boria Majumdar felt that ABD is not a match-winner and said he couldn’t win a single title for RCB. This statement of Boria Majumdar went viral on social media which was unfair to target De Villiers for RCB’s exit.
Even in the eliminator match, De Villiers stood up alone on the field against Sunrisers Hyderabad and smashed a brilliant half-century in that tough time. But he couldn’t finish the innings. Nor Majumdar criticizing him for RCB defeat in an eliminator.

So according to him Sachin was not a ‘Great’ player up until 2011? Thousands of time I have seen this chap shouting ‘Ganguly is a great Player’, ‘Ganguly is one of the best ever’, I have not seen Ganguly winning any trophy. What is this selective criticism?

By that logic Rahul Dravid,VVS Laxman,Ganguly have never won a world cup…so they are also terrible players right??
Are yaar…apne degree ki to izzat rakh lo Boria.
Kohli changes batting order in a crunch knockout…Kohli doesn’t score this IPL but ABD is responsible 🙃
