19 Mar. AB de Villiers left the cricketing world in shock when he announced his retirement from international cricket in 2018. As per media reports, ABD made a last-minute effort to make a comeback into the Proteas side ahead of the ODI World Cup last. But the South African team management turned down his proposal.
AB de Villiers comeback speculation have been on the rise ever since Mark Boucher has been appointed the head coach of South Africa. Boucher has already stated on multiple occasions that he won’t be shying away from summoning the Proteas star back into the side.
De Villiers, meanwhile, remained coy on his potential retirement U-yurm ahead of the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia. He would take a final call on his international copmeback only after the end of IPl.
“Let’s wait and see what happens. My focus is on the Indian Premier League at the moment and helping Royal Challengers Bangalore realize our full potential. Then we will sit down and have a look at the rest of the year and see what is possible,” De Villiers said as quoted by Sportstar.
“Each player must consider his own circumstances and make his own decision. I reached a point where I wanted to see more of my wife and two young sons and seek a reasonable balance between family and cricket. The mental and physical demands on the leading players are massive these days, but each player must decide what he can and can’t do,” he pointed.
