AB de Villiers aims to be an example to South African youth

De Villiers also spoke about his former South African teammate Dale Steyn who has joined the RCB ranks after Nathan Coulter-Nile's participation in the IPL was curtailed due to worldwide commitments and personal reasons.

Kohli has been fined ₹ 12 lakh for maintaining a slow-over rate during the match against Kings XI Punjab here.

While chasing a target of 174, Kohli and AB de Villiers starred for the visitors as they played knocks of 67 and 59*, respectively, to take the team over the line with four balls to spare. While one can't be too harsh on the bowlers considering that the wicket at the Wankhede is known to aide batsmen, but considering the RCB line-up, Rohit will definitely want his boys to pull up their socks. He has played for RCB from 2008 to 2010 where he picked 27 wickets in 28 matches and then joined now-defunct Deccan Chargers in 2011. One thing for sure is he'll give 200% with every ball.

This is the first time that RCB recorded six straight losses and now share the same record with Delhi Daredevils in 2013. We just weren't good on the given day. RCB won their first match in the season thus far by eight wickets. Couple of nights ago the Punjab franchise lost from a winning position against the Mumbai Indians, where Kieron Pollard bludgeoned 83 off 31 balls dishing out some severe beating for Kings XI bowlers.

Meanwhile Dale Steyn has posted an Indian Visa image of his passport on Instagram which has raised speculations that he could be joining RCB for their next match against Kings XII Punjab on Saturday. The pace-spin duo of Mohammad Shami and Ashwin has been KXIP's best bowlers and they would look to put another good show. With Kieron Pollard also showing that he still has match-winning abilities and Hardik Pandya finishing with a bang in nearly all games, the batting part of things look sorted for the home team.
