AB de Villiers, the former captain of the Proteas, may be unclear of his near future, but he believes he has a role to play in South African cricket.

De Villiers retired from all forms of cricket in November after scoring an incredible 20,017 international runs across all formats. He owns the marks for the quickest 50, 100, and 150 in ODIs.

“I still believe that I have a role to play in SA cricket and also over there in the IPL with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB),” De Villiers said.

“I have no idea what will come next but I will take it one day at a time and see. I have been looking after and mentoring some youngsters with potential and ability for the last few years,”

“No one knows about it and hopefully I can look back one day in the future knowing that I have made a big difference in the lives of a few players. That is my focus for now and I don’t know if it’s going to be professional or on a casual basis, but we will see where we go with that” he added.

De Villiers, 37, played 114 Tests, 228 ODIs, and 78 T20s for the Proteas during his 16-year international career, where he also served as a wicketkeeper-batter.
