Shimron Hetmyer nearly pulled off a heist for Delhi Capitals, but for the brilliance of AB de Villiers, whose unbeaten 75 off 42 balls had turbo-charged Royal Challengers to 171, a score Delhi fell short of by a solitary run. It was a classical edge-of-the-seat, high-quality thriller.

Destruction of de Villiers

It seemed just another day at the office for de Villiers, as he beguiled the audience. No stroke was un-de Villiers-like, the staple ones the audience had long got used to. But there’s still a thrilling freshness about them — he makes the audience believe that they are beholding the strokes for the first time in their lives. There is no monotony of repetition — that’s the stamp of true greatness, the legends of the game transcend the commonplace.

A typical de Villiers knock makes it difficult to grade the quality of strokes. Almost every stroke that flows from his bat is worthy of fine detailing, be it for his imagination, enterprise, or execution. But a steered boundary of Kagiso Rabada’s near-yorker was a thing of utter beauty. De Villiers didn’t quite pick it off his stumps, nonetheless it was a delivery most batsmen would have struggled to even get a glimpse of. Fast and searing just outside off-stump, not quite a yorker, but still a difficult ball to put away, de Villiers just moved his front foot away, opened the bat face a wee bit and turned the ball between backward point and short third-man, stationed to abort his cuts. The stroke ushered in a splendorous endgame
