#4 AB de Villiers (129* vs Gujarat Lions, 2016)
RCB were locking horns with Gujarat Lions in the previous edition at Chinnaswamy in the 44th game of the season. De Villiers was in supreme form and with the game being played in Bangalore, the Lions were quickly made aware of what they were dealing with. As was the case that season, it was once again the De Villiers-Kohli show that set the stage on fire that night as both the batsmen scored tons and made GL bowlers life miserable.
They running out of options and didn’t have any idea whatsoever, such was the damaged inflicted by these two. The South African outscored Kohli despite coming to bat at number three and having faced three deliveries less.
De Villiers cruised his way to an unconquered 129 off 52 deliveries, which contained 10 fours and 12 maximums. Riding on the Kohli-De Villiers partnership, RCB posted 248 runs on the board and won the contest by 144 runs, which also the biggest margin of victory for any team in the history of IPL.Published 04 Apr 2017, 09:44 IST
