Fans and everyone in cricket fraternity are shocked with his decision. ABD has been in tremendous form throughout his career. He is a 360-degree player and it has been always difficult for the opposition captains to place a field for him on the ground. He hit shots in all the corners of the ground.
The Cricket Legend Sachin Tendulkar is also socked by this big decision of AB de Villiers like others. He wrote on his Twitter Handle about this.
Don't say that AB de Villiers has retired from all forms of international cricket, say that AB de Villiers has retired from cricket in all 360 degrees.
