The rumour mill is ripe with speculations over the possible comeback of AB de Villiers in South African colours in the foreseeable future. The Proteas took the world by surprise when he announced his decision to retire from international cricket back in 2018 but has been active in franchise-based competitions around the world.
De Villiers has not been too expressive regarding his potential retirement U-turn ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. He has assured he would take a final call on his international comeback only after plying his trade for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (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,” he stated in a recent interview.
