While the fans are waiting to know about the return of South Africa cricket legend AB de Villiers, the Proteas Test skipper Faf de Plessis has revealed that the hard-hitting batsman is keen to return to the national team. The International return of ABD is looking like a reality after he admitted that a U-turn could happen for the forthcoming T20I World Cup 2020 in Australia.
Faf Du Plessis had earlier spoken about De Villiers’s possible return for the T20I World Cup last year after some reports of new head coach Mark Boucher being in conversation with ABD had erupted. Du Plessis said that “It is the same as I mentioned before. We spoke and I was very keen to have him back even before the new coaching staff was on board.”
As per report, the South Africa cricket management would look to have De Villiers available for T20 assignments before the World Cup T20 begins in Australia later this year. Currently, AB De Villiers is the part of Big Bash League in Australia for Brisbane Heat and has played some match-winning performances.
On May 23, 2018, AB De Villiers announced his retirement across all forms of international cricket through a video shared on Twitter, in which he explained his decision.
