I said in a blog sometime back that @ABdeVilliers17 was the true natural successor to Lara. He too can ask " Did I entertain?" And the answer would be a resounding "Yes. Yes!"

Check out the emotional video of AB De Villiers retirement speech here. We wish to see him playing at least in World Cup 2019. From all cricketing fans, we request Abraham Benjamin De Villiers to reconsider his retirement decision for his cricketing fans.
