AB De Villiers announces his retirement from International cricket

In a most shocking news to the cricketing fans around the world, South Africa cricketer AB De Villiers announces his retirement from International cricket with immediate effect. He said that “He is tired and now is the right time for the others to take over”.

Hi, this is the Tux cricket club. The high-performance centre in Pretoria where 14 seasons ago I arrived as a nervous youngster when I was first called into the Proteas squad. Today at the same place, I want to let you know that I have decided to retire from all international cricket with immediate effect,” De Villiers said in a video message.

“This is a tough decision, I have thought long and hard about it and I’d like to retire while still playing decent cricket. After the fantastic series wins against India and Australia, now feels like the right time to step aside.
 
“It would not be right for me to pick and choose where, when and in what format I play for the Proteas. For me, in the green and gold, it must be everything or nothing. I will always be grateful to the coaches and staff of Cricket South Africa for their support through all these years. The most important thank you goes out to all of my team mates throughout my career, I wouldn’t be half the player that I am without the support throughout the years.
 
“It’s not about earning more somewhere else, it’s about running out of gas and feeling that it is the right time to move on. Everything comes to an end. To the cricket fans around South Africa and the World, thank you for your kindness and generosity, and today, for your understanding.
 
“I have no plans to play overseas, in fact, I hope I can continue to be available for the Titans in domestic cricket. I will continue to be the biggest supporter of Faf du Plessis and the Proteas.”
 
The South African legendary cricketer made his International debut in 2004 against England at Port Elizabeth and has scored 8765 in Tests, 9577 in ODIs and 1672 in T20Is constituting to a total of 20,014 international runs, in a career spanning over 14 years.
