Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers has left the entire cricketing world in shock with his latest announcement as he has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket with immediate effect. Notably, the veteran batsman had already announced his retirement from international cricket in 2018.

AB de Villiers took to his social media and announced his decision. He wrote: “It has been an incredible journey, but I have decided to retire from all cricket. Ever since the back yard matches with my older brothers, I have played the game with pure enjoyment and unbridled enthusiasm. Now, at the age of 37, that flame no longer burns so brightly.”

However, he has been a regular face in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) throughout the years, playing 184 matches, and amassing 5162 runs which came at an average of 39.1. He even scored three centuries also.

AB de Villiers said in an RCB release: “I have had a long and fruitful time playing for RCB. Eleven years have just whizzed by and leaving the boys is extremely bittersweet. Of course, arriving at this decision took a lot of time, but after a lot of contemplating, I’ve decided to hang up my boots and spend quality time with my family,”

“I would like to thank the RCB management, my friend Virat Kohli, teammates, coaches, support staff, fans, and the entire RCB family for showing faith and supporting me all through these years. It has been a memorable journey with RCB. Have so many memories on the personal front to cherish for the lifetime. RCB will always be very close to me and my family and will continue to support this amazing team I am a RCBian forever,” he concluded.
