Sharjah, Oct 18 (TIWN) Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli's decision to send AB de Villiers in at No. 6 against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) was slammed by former cricketers as the Bengaluru-based franchise lost their IPL 2020 match by eight wickets on Thursday.

Both Sundar and Dube did nothing spectacular as RCB managed to get to 171/6 in 20 overs, thanks only to Chris Morris's late-order hitting.  At the innings break, former England batsman and Kohli's former RCB teammate Kevin Pietersen questioned the decision.  The decision may have been made due to AB's recent weakness against spin bowling, away turning ones in particular. Most of his dismissals in T20 cricket have come against this kind of bowling, delivered by leg-spinners and left-arm orthodox.
