“AB De Villiers is the best batsman I have bowled in all formats. He has a class act with no weakness, even if you bowl 180 km/h yorkers, he will find a way to hit. He’s just superb and it’s difficult to stop him when he gets going,” Pat Cummins told Sports Mirchi.
AB De Villiers is currently playing in the Dream11 IPL 2020 season where he’s scored 324 runs till now in played 11 matches at an average of 54 with smashing the ball at 174 strike rate. Four fifties are also included in ABD’s brilliant run.

Cummins took 3 wickets in 4 overs by spending just 17 runs against DC. Kolkata Knight Riders are currently at the fourth place in points table with 12 points from 11 games.
“Beating Delhi was fantastic as it was much needed after the poor performance against RCB. We need to play just like that in our remaining three matches against Punjab, Chennai and Rajasthan to make it through to playoffs,” he added.
Australian fast bowler also rated upcoming series against India would be tough one. He’s aware of what Indian side can do under Virat Kohli’s leadership in Australian conditions.
