IPL 2017: Virat Kohli Has Grown As A Captain, Says AB De Villiers

South Africa cricketer AB de Villiers is one of the most respected voices in International cricket and after having played with Indian skipper Virat Kohli for the RCB [Royal Challengers Bangalore], the Proteas ODI skipper has expressed his delight over the growth of  Virat Kohli as a leader. He also went ahead and said that the Indian skipper is the best player in world cricket at the moment.

At the start when people mentioned that he has leadership qualities and might become a captain one day I doubted it. I thought he was emotional with his reactions. I think he has found a way to deal with it. He is still an emotional character, he loves winning and is very passionate but he has found a way to manage and control that. I know he is a great asset for Indian cricket, he leads exceptionally well,” De Villiers said during a media interaction.

De Villiers also declared about his injury and said that he will not take the field unless he is 100% sure of his fitness.

“Even though I'm keen to get on the field, I'll make sure that I'm 100% fit because if you go on the park and you're 90%, you might be out for longer anyway. I'll hit a couple of balls, see what it feels like and then take a call,” he added.
