Jos Buttler shares AB de Villiers story on Rajasthan Royals podcast

Jos Buttler has shared a light-hearted AB de Villiers story on the latest episode of the Rajasthan Royals podcast, as below.

On AB de Villiers story:

“De Villiers was always my idol growing up, the guy I loved watching with the bat, and I got to know him a bit during the IPL. When I was at Mumbai, at the start of the game he said, ‘let’s catch-up for a beer in the hotel after’, I was so excited.”

“Got back to the hotel and I told Louise, then my fiancée, we had to get straight down to the bar as AB de Villiers is going to be there. I said ‘he’s my idol, it’s going to be awesome so play it cool and please don’t say anything stupid!”

“I had been chatting to him for 20 minutes with his thick Afrikaans accent, and Louise goes ‘so what part of New Zealand are you from’. I was so embarrassed, and she was so embarrassed for me. I don’t think I’ve seen him since!”
