Let us know that Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on Tuesday that AB de Villiers has decided not to return from international retirement.
Don’t want to take someone’s place
His former partner and current national coach, Boucher, gave the reasons for the decision of AB de Villiers and said that he does not want to replace a player who has been part of the team combination for some time. Boucher said, ‘AB has his own reasons which I respect. Unfortunately, he will not be able to be a part of the team.
