Not sure what’s wrong with Bangalore Qalandars: De Villiers

BENGALURU – Former South Africa captain and superstar batsman AB De Villiers said he has no idea what has happened to his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise after it began the ongoing season with six straight losses.

Talking exclusively to The Dependent, De Villiers said he isn’t sure what is troubling his side.

“I am not sure what’s wrong with Bangalore Qalandars,” he began. “I mean we have got some great players, international stars, someone like me in the middle order to come and whack a few, but I really don’t know why we don’t win,” he added.

The South African superstar said it’s hard to take the string of defeats given the pedigree of this franchise.

“Bangalore Qalandars is a big name, with a huge fan base. It is among the most followed and the most illustrious franchises in the league. I don’t know what it hasn’t enjoyed the kind of success that everyone expects it to,” he said.

De Villiers vowed to give his best for the remainder of the season.

“I am going to do my best in the rest of the matches, because you never know if I might be playing for Bangalore Qalandars next year or not.”
