De Villiers denies rumours of offer to captain Proteas

Former South African skipper AB de Villiers has refuted all reports that suggested him being approached to lead the national team. A TV channel had quoted the champion batsman as saying that an offer was made to him by the country’s cricket board to take the reins of the Proteas.

De Villiers retired from international cricket in 2018 but he has been linked to an imminent comeback to the senior national side. The cricketer, dubbed as ‘Mr 360’ owing to his diverse range of strokes, has been working as a T20 freelancer since his exodus from the international circuit.

Having shown keen interest to return to national colours for South Africa, it was rumored that de Villiers will rejoin the team as the captain of the side. However, he took to his official Twitter handle to deny any such approaches.
