Want To Play But Cannot Commit: AB de Villiers Reveals International Comeback Plans

The suspense over AB de Villiers’ possible return to International cricket continues and now that the coronavirus pandemic has thrown the entire world into a standstill, confusion and a lot of theories about several different things are strewn around.

The man, however, wants to make a comeback and represent his country at the highest level, but then, he does not want to commit as no one is quite certain when the next ball will be bowled. He further stressed on the fact that he wants to get the communication right and not commit to something which he might not feel like doing in the future.

“Yes, that is one of my big worries. The schedule over the next 12-24 months is very unclear. No one knows where this virus is heading and what’s going to happen with the cricket schedule around the world,” AB de Villiers said during the ‘Cricket Connected’ show on Star Sports.

“That is one of the big reasons why I am not committing to any cricket at the moment. I have always been a person who tries to stay in now as much as possible, for now it is important for me to think there might be a possibility that I could play for SA again,” he further added.

Wants To Be Better Than The Competition

The right-hander is, however, not leaving anything to chance and is working on his fitness on a consistent basis as he wants to be ready and better than his competition if and when he does get into the scheme of things as far as selection for the national team is concerned.

No clarity Over T20 World Cup

De Villiers was targeting the T20 World Cup for a possible comeback, and he had signalled his intentions to both Graeme Smith and Mark Boucher, but then, now the fate of the competition is not entirely bright and this has thrown all his plans off the straight line.

“Yes things might change if the tournament [T20 World Cup] gets postponed to 2021, I don’t know. To be honest, it is something I don’t want to commit to at the moment because of past experiences… really getting hurt in the past. I sort of burnt myself in the past by committing to certain things I wasn’t 100% sure of… not communicating as well as I wanted to, to the right people at the right time.
