AB de Villiers played his last international match on 30 March 2018, although he continued to play several T20 leagues. Former South African explosive batsman AB de Villiers has announced about his future that he is not thinking of any kind of cricket at the moment because all kinds of cricket are currently closed due to Coronavirus.


And no one knows when international cricket will start. Expressing his concern in a TV channel program, de Villiers said that the coronavirus is increasing in the world, and in such a situation the future of cricket is hanging in the balance.

Nobody knows what is going to happen in the next 12 months, for how long cricket will be closed and when it starts, how can he take it, hardly anyone can tell clearly in detail. Hence, de Villiers has not yet made any decision regarding his future.

AB De Villiers about future of cricket

‘Yes, this is also my concern that it is not clear for the next 12 months because the virus is growing and there is no idea what is going to happen in the cricket program around the world.’

‘This is my biggest concern and that is why at this time I am not thinking about any kind of cricket. I want to keep my focus. But during the next 12 months, there is a lot of uncertainty about the cricket program. Now we have to see what is going to happen next.



A few days ago, de Villiers once again put a stop to rumors of him becoming the captain of South Africa, and the team’s director, Graeme Smith, also denied that no such offer was made to De Villiers.

‘I wish I play for South Africa again and Cricket South Africa HAs again asked me to lead the team again. The most important thing for me is that I have to be in my top form and also I have to be better than the player who is with me.

De Villiers, who intimidated the bowlers with his aggressive batting, retired from international cricket in 2018, but shortly after, he expressed his desire to return to T20 and ODI cricket for South Africa.
