Form Will Play a Key Role in the World Cup – AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers, who announced his retirement earlier this year, feels form will play a key role in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup, next year in England.
Meanwhile, de Villiers, who surprised the world with his overnight decision, feels South Africa is a going through a good phase. The Proteas has been in fine form in the recent past as they had won the ODI series against Zimbabwe and Australia.
“I think the Proteas are looking good for the World Cup,” he said while talking to Cricket Next.“They have had a great series win against Australia, India and England are the other two teams that I feel have a good shot at the title. The bowlers look exceptional but we will be needing in-form batsmen to travel to England,” he said.
Meanwhile, there is no doubt that South Africa will miss the services of AB de Villiers. However, the batsman is happy with his decision as he is getting time to spend time with his family.
“I am extremely happy, I feel a lot of happiness in my heart and that’s important,” he said. “My relationships with my wife, my kids, my parents, my brothers are the most important things in my life & that’s exceptionally well in the last few years. So, I am a very happy man,” he added.
Meanwhile, AB de Villiers is currently plying his trade in the Mzansi Super League. He is leading Tshwane Spartans and started the campaign on a brilliant note with a half-century.
South Africa, on the other hand, is yet to lift the World Cup and will be desperate to overturn their record in the upcoming mega event.
