In the 420 matches he has played for South Africa, de Villiers has amassed 20014 runs across the three formats.
ABD was recently seen in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) colours during the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is captained by Virat Kohli. The team, however, finished sixth in the IPL, failing to qualify for playoffs.
The biggest entertainer in the last decade has bid goodbye to International cricket…your absence will be felt, AB. Cricket will be poorer. Wish you all the best for your future endeavours. Go well @ABdeVilliers17 🙌👍
