Former South African skipper, AB de Villiers has actually announced his retirement from international cricket from all formats with instant result, stating that 'he has run out of gas'.
It has come as a substantial shock to the fans of cricket as AB de Villiers is just 34-years of age and has actually been tremendously fit until now.AB has actually played 114 Test matches, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 matches for the Proteas.The South African
published a video on his social networks account declaring that he will be leaving from the beloved game. In the video, he said
I have actually had my turn and, to be sincere, I'm worn out. This is a tough choice. I've believed long and hard about it and I want to retire still playing good cricket.It would not
be ideal for me to pick where, when and in what format I bet the Proteas. For me, in green and gold, it needs to be everything or nothing.The video was
submitted on his main Twitter account, attached below.De Villiers included in his video message that he has"no strategies "to play overseas, and he intends to continue to be readily available for domestic cricket in South Africa.I do not know ways to take this
news. I quite much lost all my interest in cricket after the World Cup 2003, but I would still enjoy a game if I saw AB de Villiers playing in it. This is the cricket equivalent of Steven Gerrard retiring from Liverpool F.C. for me. It's sad but everybody has to retire one day. Love Proteas. Love AB.
