    AB de Villiers retires from international cricket

    Cape Town - In a shock move, AB de Villiers has announced his retirement from all international cricket with immediate effect.

    The 34-year-old announced the news on his own app on Wednesday, posting a video to his followers.

    "It's been a tough decision to make and I've thought long and hard about it but I believe it is my time to step down," he wrote.

    Another Kolpak for an English county, throwing in some pyjama franchise stuff out-of-season, or just the latter? We'll see I suppose.

    Well that came out of nowhere... expected him to at least play for the WC next year.

    And he has been in fantastic form since returning as well...

    Incredible cricketer, top 5 ODI batsman of all time and an ATVG Test cricketer too.

    .... and I note that CSA did not seem to have a media statement in place, so everybody including Gibson may be blindsided by this.

    Yes, following next year's world cup would have been more logical if you were going to do it?

    smart move - get out before SA flunk at another WC.

    Honestly I've got no idea what he's doing. Wait another year and play the 50 over WC surely? Give up test and int t20 if you want.

    He was contracted so it seemed like he was all set.

    But this is obviously after a long IPL stint and the drain it takes on the family.

    Pity he couldn't go out for us to say goodbye but what a massive loss to the game of international cricket.

    You at peace with not winning a world cup. An interview as soon as he got to India with an English newspaper said as much.

    Thanks Abraham Benjamin De Villiers ie The Only South African in the top 100 popular sportsmen world wide.

    Says he will continue to be available for the Titans though.

    This feels a very personal decision... just wants to be home with family.
