AB de Villiers’ dropped the bombshell on his fans when he announced about his retirement through his tweet. It came out as a blow to his fans because lately, he was giving exceptional performances for his team, Royal Challengers Bangalore in the eleventh season of Indian Premier League.
Infact, it was just a few days ago, when the world went berserk after the stunning catch he took against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The social media was flooded with posts praising and appreciating the athletic skills of the prolific cricketer.
Throughout this season, AB de Villiers gave consistently great performances, he was like an eye treat for the fans of Royal Challengers Bangalore who were anxiously waiting for their team to perform, but it were only AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli who dragged the team this far, in the season. He scored 480 runs in the 12 matches he played this season.
Ask any IPL fan, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers’ partnership is one of the most awaited partnerships ever. In the latest season of IPL, we got to see them together smashing bowlers of the other teams to all the corners of the ground, many times.
However, after he announced his retirement, there was one question in every Indian fan of AB de Villiers, as he has retired from all the formats of the game, will he play for Royal Challengers Bangalore next year or not?
