AB de Villiers, who was adjudged the Man of the Match, said it was a long wait for the team.
The former Proteas batsman, who retired from worldwide cricket in May 2018, has dedicated his time to play in T20 tournaments around the world. I can not keep playing 10-11 months a year and keep being sharp after 15 years of worldwide cricket. [It] really keeps me energetic, ' he said. So, very excited to be joining Virat, AB and the boys, Gary, and I'll see you guys in a couple of days. I get to work with some of the local youngsters, which gives me great motivation.
De Villiers announced his retirement from all forms of worldwide cricket on May 23, 2018, but has been plying his trade in the various T20 leagues across the world very successfully. He surprisingly went unsold in the IPL auction held in January. But as I said, I've got too much respect for the game of cricket to get ahead of myself and get too hard on myself. "That is (being sharp) exactly the reason why I decided not to play global cricket, it's to be as sharp as I can in other forms of the game around the world". I know you're always just one knock away from being in that confident zone. Australian fast bowling allrounder Nathan Coulter-Nile who did not get any match is set to return home and fans are claiming on social media that Steyn will be his replacement. De Villiers believes that it would be fantastic to have Steyn back into the lineup. "We need to grab those chances, can't give excuses every day".
With this win, however, RCB were not able to make any change in their place in the league standings as they continue to languish at the bottom of the table.
"Yes, we know what we have to do now - we have to win a lot of games of cricket, but the next step is Mumbai, at the Wankhede staium".
