Star Cricketer AB de Villiers announces retirement from international cricket

ab de villiers announces retirement

South African right handed megastar- Abraham Benjamin de Villiers aka AB de Villiers (34) has decided to quit international cricket. This announcement of retirement was followed by the exit of his Indian Premiere League (IPL) team- Royal Challengers Bangalore from its worthwhile 11th season. He is best known for his exceptional batting and pyrotechnics in the IPL seasons, winning hearts of fans across India.


He took to twitter for the big announcement saying, “I have decided to retire from all international cricket with immediate effect. After 114 matches, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 internationals, it is time for others to take over. I have had my turn, and to be honest, I am tired. 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.”

Here is the announcement video:

Following the announcement twitter was flooded with emotions and wishes for the living legend:


“Thank you for all the memories@ABdeVilliers17 #ABRetires”: ICC

“Like your on field game, may you have 360- degree success off the field as well. You will definitely be missed, @ABdeVilliers17. My best wishes to you!”: Sachin Tendulkar

The former South African captain has said that he would continue to play for his domestic team, Titans.

“#ABdeVilliers played cricket exactly as it should be played. As fun. As an adventure. As joy.”Harsha Bhogle


He began his international career as a wicketkeeper/batsman and is noted for many eccentric shots behind the wicket-keeper and slips, earning him the title of Mr. 360. De Villiers holds many batting records including, world’s fastest 50, 100 and 150 (ODI), the fastest test century by a South African and the fastest 50 (T20 international) by a South African.

“The world of cricket will definitely miss you @ABDevilliers17! loads and loads of love from all of us in India. Enjoy your second innings. #TopMan #Mr360 #Superman”: Suresh Raina

I respect ABD’s Decision. Great people know when it is right time to hang the boots. It is better to leave when you are high in whatever you are doing than made to leave because of bad times or becoming the victim of envious people #ABDevilliers”- Rahul Dravid
