Coaching or Comeback: AB de Villiers reveals his future cricketing plans
AB de Villiers also picked his top three teams for World Cup 2019.
Former South African skipper AB de Villiers had stunned the cricketing world with his sudden decision to quit international cricket earlier this year. His departure from the national side has certainly created a big void in the team that will take quite some time to get filled. After quitting international cricket, he did mention that he would like to continue playing in the T20 leagues.
AB de Villiers reflected on his future cricketing plans recently. Earlier, elucidating the reasons behind his decision to retire, the batsman had noted that he felt it was the right time to pass the baton to other players. He had quoted that he wished to retire whilst playing good quality cricket and being in good form.
Commenting on his future plans in the sport, AB de Villiers looked firm in his decision making. He noted that he is certainly not considering making a comeback to international cricket. Also, he cited that he is not interested in taking up a coaching role either. However, he will continue to ply his trade in T20 leagues across the globe.
“I am not making a comeback and definitely not interested in coaching – will be playing t20 tournaments on offer,” the former Proteas skipper was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
On another note, ABD was all praise for his Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Virat Kohli. He believes that people should give Kohli some time and have faith in him despite India’s Test series defeats in England and South Africa. He feels the Australia tour will be a big one for the Indian captain. Commenting on the World Cup 2019, AB picked India, South Africa, and England to be the favourites for the tournament.
