It’s no secret that Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are good friends. The duo has played together for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League for many years, after all.

No wonder, the South African was asked to open up on what it’s like to have the Indian star around.

In an exclusive chat with Breakfast With Champions’, de Villiers revealed his family – especially his kids – enjoys the company of Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma.

“We are neighbours. If it wasn’t for the mosquitoes here, we would’ve left our doors open and probably would’ve shared a big room,” he quipped.

“Anushka’s here all the time, my family is there, the kids are running around. The kids were knocking on his door, early in the morning waking him up. He would let them in and would have coffee together. They were so good with the kids.

“We spent hours in the pool together, everyone just jumping and diving, and they’re so chilled.”

Further spilling the beans on how close Kohli and he are to each another, de Villiers said: “I’m scared of saying anything to him now because. If I say like, ‘Oh, I like your shoes.’ The next minute he organizes me those shoes. I’m like, ‘Virat, just stop it’.

“He looks after everyone. I was like, ‘My phone is flat again.’ ‘Oh, you need a power bank.’”
