When the South African superstar AB de Villiers announced his retirement from international cricket earlier this year, it took the entire cricketing fraternity by shock.
Cricket news: His participation in the World Cup seems to be in huge doubts
Recently he made a comeback and the way he has performed, he has indicated something special. But he was happy to let go the dream of winning the World Cup as he was becoming too ‘tired’ of excessive cricket.
But however there is a twist in the tale as De Villiers has himself said that he might be reconsidering his decision and might even make a comeback for his country.
De Villiers had a wonderful IPL season before he announced his retirement and was also in good form in the Test series against Australia and India.
He had previously made himself clear that he will not be available for any T20 leagues. But over the last few months, he has signed a couple of T20 contracts and has confirmed that he would playing IPL next year.
According to some reports from Sports Tak, AB de Villiers will make his final call on his international journey in the upcoming January next year.
This means that there is a possibility that ABD will return and try to fulfil his wish of winning the World Cup which is scheduled to be played in England next year.
It would also be a huge boost for the Proteas, who had already missed the star batsman in the middle order which was pretty evident against Zimbabwe.
The news was confirmed by Vikrant Gupta, who is the editor of Aaj Tak, while he was reviewing the first ODI match between India and the Windies.
However with this revelation comes other questions too. If ABD is fit then why did he retire in the first place? Was he having any issues with Cricket South Africa? All these questions will now be answered in coming January and with the fate of South Africa in the World Cup will also be decided.
