AB de Villiers is a South African famous international cricketer. He is one of the great batsmen ever to have played the game. In a video published on Twitter last year (2018), ab de Villiers called time with instant impact on his 14-year global career, saying he was “tired” and “running out of gas.” For me, it must be all or nothing in green and gold, “he said.” I will always be thankful to my team-mates, Cricket South Africa’s coaches and employees for their assistance throughout all these years.

Although he turned 35 in February, in the recent IPL he demonstrated his enduring class with 442 runs at 44.20 for Royal Challengers Bangalore and is due to connect with Middlesex in the T20 Blast right after the World Cup. Nevertheless, more lately, de Villiers dropped suggestions that he would be prepared to renege on his choice. Speaking about his World Cup offer on Indian TV in May, he said: “I was interested in playing in the World Cup, but I left, I retired.

It was a very delicate situation, “he added.” I have been labeled as a man who picks and chooses when and when I was playing for the last three years of my life. So from home I received a lot of criticism, which also played a part in retiring me. And then going ‘ Hey, but I’m still going to play the World Cup ‘ was hard for me. It’s that picking and selecting something again, and doing something like that is quite arrogant. But as they say, on both sides you can’t get your bread buttered.
