WATCH: Mr 360 AB de Villiers asks Sadhguru solutions to South Africa's problems
South African cricketer AB de Villiers had a video conversation with Indian spiritual leader Sadhguru on problems affecting his home country.
South African cricketer AB de Villiers, who will be playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), recently approached Indian yogi Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev seeking answers to the problems his country is constantly going through. The African nation has deep wounds of racism and oppression, and the former Proteas captain wanted to know what what the spiritual leader thought about his country.
A chat with a wise man from India. Thank you @SadhguruJV for this beautiful message about our country & continent. Truly inspiring for all of us here. SA is excited to welcome you on April 4th. Also thanks for the tip to win the lotto????— AB de Villiers (@ABdeVilliers17) March 9, 2020
On Monday, ABD shared Sadghuru's answer to his questions which led to a Twitter meltdown with IPL fans excited to see their favourite Mr 360 in conversation with the Indian guru. The South African is expected to spearhead RCB's IPL season 13 along with captain Virat Kohli as they seek to break the jinx that has prevented them from winning the title despite reaching the finals two times.
Like Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, AB de Villiers has been out of international cricket action for a while after announcing his retirement, though there are talks that he will now return to the Proteas team with coach Mark Boucher keen to bring back the batsman ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
With a strong batting line-up and an improved bowling unit, RCB will once again be expected to challenge for the IPL trophy even though the fast spreading coronavirus have put the tournament organisers in a puddle with experts saying it would be wise to postpone the T20 tournament.
Sadhguru will be visiting South Africa in April 2020 and the video interaction with ABD would have given more publicity to the event. The Isha Foundation head will be hosting ‘An Evening with the Mystic’ where South Africans can interact with Sadhguru.
