AB de Villiers will not be returning to play for South Africa in the 2021 T20 World Cup!
The former Proteas captain retired from international cricket in 2018, however, there have been some talks suggesting that he might be making a comeback for the national side for the upcoming World Cup.
But it has been made clear that AB de Villiers had decided “once and for all” that his retirement was final.
The 37-year-old’s stunning performances in this year’s IPL had sparked further talks of an international comeback.
“Discussions with AB de Villiers have concluded with the batsman deciding once and for all, that his retirement will remain final,” Cricket South Africa said in its statement.
De Villiers represented South Africa in 114 Tests, 228 ODIs, and 78 T20 Internationals (T20Is).
