South African player Faf Du Plessis wants that AB De Villiers to play for South Africa again in T20I Cricket. He wanted that ABD was part of our 2020 T20l World Cup team.
Unfortunately the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia was postponed due to the Covid-19 situation. But du Plessis is keen to seen de Villiers back again in South African colours during the 2021 World Cup next year in India.
“It’s [trying to convince De Villiers to come back] actually something I did pretty much straight after the 2019 World Cup. After a week of sulking, I was like ‘okay, how can we plan for the next World Cup?’ Which is the 2020 [T20] World Cup. I got on a phone call with him and I said ‘listen, I’m giving you the heads-up now, the heads-up that you wanted. So, get yourself back to playing T20 cricket for South Africa’,” said De Plessis during a webinar hosted by the South African Business Council.
“Right now the leadership group, which no longer requires my WhatsApps and phone calls, would need to just look at how exactly that looks for him. I know he was keen to play this year in the 2020 World Cup, but now that’s not happening… So I think what will happen now with the conversations there is just when he can come back and play some games that lead up towards the tournament.”
AB De Villiers announced his retirement in 2018 there after he is playing in competitive cricket around the world p. Currently he is playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
