The England all-rounder Ben Stokes has a solid and eventually amusing answer to stop veteran batsman AB de Villiers. Stokes believes that one can put the brakes on de Villiers onslaught by bowling underarm to him.

Stokes tweeted the famous underarm video clip when Greg Chappell asked his brother Trevor to bowl underarm.

The infamous incident happened when New Zealand required six runs to win off the last ball. The rule was later discarded from the books.

Meanwhile, South African talismanic batsman AB de Villiers was on fire against Delhi Daredevils (DD).

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman brought his tour de force.

The Men in Red didn’t have the best of starts to the ongoing eleventh season of the IPL. Consequently, it was an imperative match for RCB.

Royal Challengers Bangalore had their backs against the wall when they lost their skipper Virat Kohli (30) courtesy spectacular boundary line catch by Trent Boult.

The onus was on de Villiers and he played a majestic knock of unbeaten 90 off just 39 balls.

The right-handed batsman smashed ten fours and five sixes in his blistering innings as he registered the staggering strike rate of 230.77.

It was pure carnage from AB de Villiers as he was able to take RCB over the line.

However, Virat Kohli led team has thus far won two matches and lost three in the lucrative Twenty20 tournament so far.

The Proteas batsman has played match-winning knock in both their wins. AB de Villiers was adjudged the Man of the Match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) before delivering against Daredevils.

It is known that AB de Villiers is one of the most difficult batsmen to bowl at the International level. The flamboyant batsman has the ability to pull off the most incredible shots.

AB De Villiers magnificent exhibition of strokeplay was once again on display at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday night.
