South African legend AB de Villiers says he’d love to play again for his country at this year’s ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
Speaking after the match, de Villiers discussed potentially returning to play for South Africa, having retired from the Proteas in May 2018.
“There’s a lot that needs to happen before that becomes reality but I would to (play in the T20 World Cup),” de Villiers said.
“It’s a long way away still, and plenty can happen. There’s the IPL coming up, I’ve still got to be in form at that time.
“So I’m thinking of throwing my name in the hat and hoping that everything will work out.
“It’s not a guarantee, once again. I don’t want to disappoint myself or other people, so for now I’m just going to try and keep a low profile, try and play the best possible cricket that I can and then see what happens towards the end of the year.”
De Villiers enjoyed a remarkable and decorated international career for South Africa, playing more than 100 Tests and scoring more than 8,000 Test runs. He also scored almost 10,000 ODI runs from 228 matches.
The Proteas only won three matches at the 50-over World Cup and disappointingly finished seventh overall.
