After the match-winning innings of AB de Villiers, he was highly praised by Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli. Kohli called De Villiers the most influential player. After De Villiers' unbeaten 55-ball unbeaten innings of 55 runs, Virat said, "AB has always been a player who is ready to adapt his game according to the circumstances. In my view, he is the most influential player in the IPL. '
He said, "If he walks then the rival team comes to know that they have less chance and there is a reason behind it. With the presence of a player like him, the team always feels that we are never out of the match.
Kohli said, "To be honest, you are always tense in chasing goals because you don't know how many balls AB will get to play. Also credited to Gurkeerat (Singh Mann), he stayed with AB. It doesn't matter that the bowler is a con, he (AB) does what he has to do. '
