Cape Town - Proteas star batsman AB de Villiers has been declared fit for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
De Villiers suffered a viral fever, which saw him miss two matches.
Bangalore's coach Daniel Vettori confirmed the news on Friday and also revealed that Proteas wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock will not play in their next match on Saturday.
"AB is back fit, Quinton is away from this game," said Vettori, as quoted by CricTracker.
"Quinton has returned home for a wedding so he is unavailable for this match so probably it's an easy decision for us to make."
Bangalore face the Chennai Super Kings at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Saturday.
RCB are currently fifth on the IPL standings and need to win at least five matches out of the remaining six to qualify for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, are second on the log and are tied with Sunrisers Hyderabad on 12 points.
