AB de Villiers aims for an International comeback for South Africa

The star-studded batsman AB de Villiers has revealed his wish of making a National comeback ahead of the high-profile T20 World Cup in Australia. The right-handed batsman, who bid adieu to the International cricket back in May 2018, is clearly satisfied with the new inclusions in the Cricket South Africa management.

This has led the former batsman to re-think about making a comeback for South Africa when his side direly needs him. The veteran batsman mentioned his consent after the conclusion of his first Big Bash League game, playing for Brisbane Heat. “There is a lot needed to happen before it comes to reality”, de Villiers initiated.

“I would love to and I have been talking to Mark Boucher (South Africa’s new coach), Graeme Smith (CSA director of cricket), and Faf du Plessis (South Africa’s skipper) back home, we are all keen to make it happen”, he added.

“It is a long way still, and plenty can happen. So, I am thinking of throwing my name in the hat and hoping everything will work out”, AB said. Remember, de Villiers also showed his consent of playing the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 for South Africa but ended up being rejected by the Cricket South Africa. But with major amendments in the cricket board, de Villiars is more willing and confident about his comeback this time around.
