AB de Villiers picks Tendulkar as the better batsman without any hesitation and he thinks that Virat Kohli would also give the same answer if being asked.

However, De Villiers admits that Virat Kohli is better at chasing targets, referring Kohli to the chase-master.

Personally for me, specially in a chase I’d say Virat is the best I’ve ever seen in my life. There’s no-one that beats him when it comes to… the opposition scores 330 and you’ve got to go chase it down."

Below are some sharing from AB de Villiers on Virat Kohli!

"He's much deeper than just a cricket player […] I think most people realise after a while that there's more to life than just cricket," de Villiers said. "I think we all fall into that bubble initially. But Virat's always been a thinker, he experiments [with] a lot of things, he loves trying new things out - gym wise, what he puts in his mouth. He thinks a lot about life after life - what's to come, the different religions, we talk about everything.

We go pretty deep and his missus as well, Anushka, we have very deep conversations, which is fantastic. We talk about children and family. We're waiting for that first little Kohli to come. It's a good friendship and we always find a way to talk about cricket as well, but 90% of the time we talk about other stuff. It's refreshing and in the middle of a very intense IPL tournament."
