IPL 2017: AB de Villiers to miss Today’s match against Gujarat Lions due to Injury


Royal Challengers Bangalore’s top order destructive batsman AB de Villiers to miss Today’s (April 18) match against Gujarat Lions in Rajkot due to his recurring back trouble.

AB de Villiers missed first two matches of this tournament due to injury and came back to the team to scored brilliant knock against Kings XI Punjab (89 runs including 9 sixes). AB de Villiers himself tweeted on his account that he is not been a part of tonight’s game.

“Disappointed to be missing the match tonight for RCB, due to injury. Good luck to @imVkohli and the team. Let’s go @RCBTweets !!”

Last season runners up RCB has won only one match so far of five matches and picks the last position in the table. Now, the destructive player also out of the team due to injury in the crucial match. This is a big blow for Bangalore team and the dangerous Chris Gayle also out of form throughout the season so far. This is right time for Captain Kohli to decide how to manage and sort out the mistakes to seal their second victory for their team.
