AB de Villiers Retires IPLvia

Abraham Benjamin de Villiers announces retirement from all forms of cricket. He had already taken retirement from international cricket on May 23, 2018. ABD took to Twitter and shared the news with his fans and followers. It is sad news for all the curious fans that he will not be playing IPL as well. AB de Villiers wrote,

“It has been an incredible journey, but I have decided to retire from all cricket. Ever since the back yard matches with my older brothers, I have played the game with pure enjoyment and unbridled enthusiasm. Now, at the age of 37, that flame no longer burns so brightly.”

He continued, and thanks to all the cricket fans for supporting him and being by his side always. ABD added,

That’s the reality I must accept – and, even if it may seem sudden, that is why I am making this announcement today. I’ve had my time. Cricket has been exceptionally kind to me.

I would like to thank every teammate, every opponent, every coach, every physio and every staff member who has travelled the same path, and I am humbled by the support I have received in South Africa, in India, wherever I have played

AB de Villiers holds the record for World’s Fastest ODI 50, Century, and 150. ABD began his international career as a wicket-keeper batsman, but he mostly played solely as a batsman. He is recognized as one of the most innovative batsmen in the modern game. AB de Villiers made his international debut in a Test match against England in 2004 and first played an ODI in early 2005. His debut in Twenty20 International cricket came in 2006. ABD has a fan following from all over the world. Thank you, Ab de Villiers, for all the wonderful memories.
