Talking about his conversations with AB, Gurkeerat said that it he feels comfortable to talk about his technique to "one of the greats" of the game.
"I've been talking to them about the technique and how the wickets are going to play," Gurkeerat says in the video.
"With AB, you have a lot of experience. Last year also I was with him. I'm comfortable talking to AB about my batting. Definitely, it helps. He's one of the greats of the game."
Dube, meanwhile, asks for suggestions from AB de Villiers on his body movements during batting.
The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League begins on September 19 when previous year's finalists, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings take each other on.
