AB de Villiers wants To Play T20 World Cup 2021 For South Africa
AB de Villiers, who retired from all forms of international cricket in 2016, is keen to play in the T20 World Cup 2021 for South Africa this year. He also said that he is in talks with head coach Mark Boucher during this IPL.
De Villiers played another great inning against Kolkata on Sunday, so the 36-year-old is out of the question. De Villiers’ return before the 2019 World Cup after retirement was talked about, he himself was positive about it. But in the end, the selectors did not consider him.
De Villiers’ return was discussed before the T20 World Cup, which was postponed due to the Covid-19 until the end of last year. Seba Boucher said de Villiers would only come if he could strengthen the team, not for any other reason.
Ahead of the tournament, which is set to take place on Indian soil this time, de Villiers once again spoke about the possibility of his return. But yes, we have discussed it before. ”
“Last year, Boucher asked me if I was enthusiastic. I replied that of course. At the end of the IPL, considering our form and fitness, we will think about it again. ”
However, de Villiers reminded us not only of our own situation but also of the team. “Again, he has to look at the situation of the team – who has been performing for a while. If there is no place for me in the end, so be it. If everything goes well, it will be nice. I look forward to talking to Boucher at the end of the IPL, and I will plan after that. ”
However, the situation in South Africa is not favorable at the moment, they recently lost the T20 series at home 3-1 against Pakistan. Boucher also said that he had talked to de Villiers before the IPL.
