De Villiers is unsure about the T20 World Cup return. AB De Villiers is pretty unsure about the return in international cricket.
De Villiers has not decided to return in T20 World Cup but indicated that the probability to return in the T20 World Cup decreases if the T20 World Cup Schedule postpone.
The superstar who shocked the world with his retirement in 2018. But last year ahead of World Cup he makes himself available for the team selection.
South Africa selectors simply ignored AB De Villiers at that time by saying there are some rules and regulations, and if De Villiers made into the World Cup list then many youngsters feel insecure.
The buzz that De Villiers returning in the T20 World Cup is pretty high only after ‘Mark Boucher’ took the role of head coach in December last year.
AB De Villiers during the Big-Bash League outing said that he would love to play for his national team again and hopefully be involved pretty soon.
In an interview, De Villiers spoke to Afrikaans Weekly Rapport, that form and fitness would be the major considerations to come back at the international level.
De Villiers was supposed to take part in this year’s Australia and England series. But unfortunately, he was ignored by the selectors. The IPL and all the major events including T20 World Cup are lineups to postpone for a later date, hence it would make difficult for De Villiers to return in international cricket.
“If the tournament is postponed to next year, a whole lot of things will change. At the moment, I feel available but at the same time, I don’t know how my body will feel then and if I will be fit.” De Villiers told Afrikaans Weekly Rapport.
“If I am 100% as good as I want to be, then I will be available. But if I am not, I won’t open myself up to that because I am not the type of person who does things at 80%.” De Villiers added.
De Villiers often criticized by the media and the public for the perception he was taking and choosing when he wants to play. About asking on this issue De Villiers said that in the past I got hurt and burned.
“I Can’t walk into the team. Like every other player, I’ve to work for my place and deserve it.” De Villiers said.
You know that IPL is going to postpone for indefinitely and T20 World Cup may be postponed for the next year due to coronavirus outbreak globally.
If the T20 World Cup pushed up by ICC for the next year then De Villiers is unsure about the T20 World Cup return.
