South African Skipper Faf DU Plessis has said that AB de Villiers will be welcomed back into the national team ahead of the T20 World Cup.
AB de Villiers, who retired from international cricket in 2018, was quoted on Australian website on Tuesday as saying he was keen to return.
He has been in constant touch with South Africa head coach Mark Boucher, CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith. Captain Faf du Plessis about his possible return to the national team for the showpiece event.
Speaking on the eve of South Africa’s third Test against England, which starts on Thursday, Du Plessis hinted that De Villiers’ return was almost a done deal. Although both De Villiers and South African assistant coach Enoch Nkwe have emphasised that it is far from finalised, NDTV reported.
Du Plessis first revealed last month that he had been talking to his one-time schoolmate, who is among the world’s most in-demand T20 players.
“It’s the same as what I mentioned before,” said Du Plessis. We spoke and I was very keen to have him back even before the new coaching staff was on board. Now it seems the team’s senior management are similarly keen. It was a process of what does the next year look like in terms of T20 cricket,” said Du Plessis.
How many games, where, when, what? And then try to unfold that in a way that he can come back. He’s keen to come back. I don’t know when.
In an ideal world, we would like to try and make sure that we can play our best 11, 12, 13 players for a few games. We can play series together leading up to the T20 World Cup,” Du Plessis said and explained his thinking.
AB de Villiers is currently playing for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League, which ends four days before South Africa’s T20 series against England.
