De Villiers was at his scintillating best in the IPL on Saturday, smashing 72* off just 37 balls (4x4, 6x6) to help get RCB over the line against the Delhi Daredevils. 

Kohli (70 off 40) had put on 118 runs with De Villiers before he was dismissed. 

"It’s lovely batting with AB. We’ve done this many times in the past," Kohli was quoted as saying on the ICC's official website after the match.

"I don’t need to say much ... it’s been an honour for me to bat with him.

"I was disappointed after getting out since we had the run rate in control. I wanted to finish it with three overs to spare and get the net run rate up. But the two points are important."
