Cricket’s ‘Superman’ AB De Villiers hinted at retirement in an interview. But also confirmed that upcoming two tests against England are his primary focus at the moment. There have some speculations over whether AB wants to retire or not and he admits there is some truth in those claims. “For two or three years I’ve been searching for the right answers to play a little less cricket in one way or another, to keep myself fresh and enjoying the game. Every now and then I find I am not enjoying myself as much as I should be. I’ve been talking to a few people and obviously that’s leaked.”
The 31 year old batting maestro is now captaining South Africa against England in the last two tests. Hashim Amla had stepped down from captaincy after the defeat in second test and De Villiers was put in charge. He said, “I’m still very committed to the job. The two Test matches now is all that I am focusing on. There’s a nice big break of six months before we play Test cricket again. Lots of things can happen before then.” In the interview AB also spoke about the T20 competitions being held around the world. He believes international cricket should be the main focus of cricketers but the payment from these tournaments often make a huge financial difference. So ICC must find a way to keep players fresh for international matches.
