Probably one of the most tragic news this year would be the retirement of Protea legend Abraham Benjamin De Villiers. His sudden retirement post-Indian Premier League came as a shocker to cricket enthusiasts around the world as he called his time when he was in a prime form of his career. Even, certain sections of people predicted that AB de Villiers presence would play a vital role in the World Cup next year.
Though there were rumours regarding his return to the international arena, he clarified that he isn’t in a position to take back his words but would continue to represent a few T20 leagues across the world.
Manzi T20 league, the first of its kind in South African cricket has already started getting attention from fans across the world. Particularly, AB de Villiers straightway resumed his duties of showing his destructive sense to the fans. After his blistering 93 in the warmup game, he came out all guns blazing in the first game against Capetown Blitz.
Scoring a brisk 59 which included 5 big sixes, AB de Villiers announced his return in style. Though the side Tswhane Spartans lost by a margin of 49 runs, fans are content that they would get a glimpse of the ‘Superman’ after a long gap.
