De Villiers, who recently recovered from a back injury, came in as a replacement for hard-hitting West Indian batsman <a href="http://aninews.in/keysearch/keyword-search/chris-gayle.html"> Chris Gayle</a> in his first match for the Bangalore-based team played at Indore's Holkar Stadium. Although the RCB slumped to an eight wicket defeat, the Proteas <a href="http://aninews.in/keysearch/keyword-search/odi.html"> ODI</a> skipper produced one of the most blistering innings of the competition so far. <p></p> <p></p>De Villiers smashed three boundaries and nine sixes in his 89-run knock off 46 balls to take RCB to 148 in their stipulated 20 overs. However, the stellar knock played by the 33-year-old went in vain as the <a href="http://aninews.in/keysearch/keyword-search/kings-xi-punjab.html"> Kings XI Punjab</a> chased down the score with more than five overs to spare. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">I did battle against some serious batters in my time. <a href="https://twitter.com/ABdeVilliers17">@ABdeVilliers17</a> is the scariest player on the planet I have ever seen. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/breathtaking?src=hash">#breathtaking</a></p> <p></p> Allan Donald (@AllanDonald33) <a href="https://twitter.com/AllanDonald33/status/851673856288976896">April 11, 2017</a></blockquote> <p></p>"I did battle against some serious batters in my time. @ABdeVilliers17 is the scariest player on the planet I have ever seen. #breathtaking," Donald, who is currently serving Bangalore's bowling coach, as tweeted.
