Legendary South African cricketer, AB de Villiers has confirmed that he will be back at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023; however, just not as a player. He did not feature in RCB’s IPL 2022 campaign but promises to return to the franchise in some other capacity. ABD also announced that he is done playing the game as he recently underwent eye surgery, but he has promised to return to the Chinnaswamy next year – to extend his support as RCB.

During a recent social media interaction, AB de Villiers said, “I will go to Chinnaswamy Stadium next year. But not for playing cricket. I am going to apologize to the RCB fans for not winning the IPL title so far. I also want to thank them for their support over the past decade. I can’t play cricket anymore. Because I had surgery on my right eye.”

Besides informing about his upcoming YouTube channel, AB De Villiers talked about a variety of topics, including his future plans. One profile that De Villiers is definitely not inclined towards, at least for now, is coaching. Having called time on a glittering career, De Villiers is planning to spend time with his family, whereas a coaching gig will require a maddening traveling schedule.

Talking about the same, AB de Villiers said, “I am definitely not planning to coach a team. I absolutely love to share everything that I have learnt, that will come. But I am not going to be joining a team, coaching and travelling the world again. I am very happy to spend a bit of time at home after travelling for 18 years.”

AB de Villiers revealed that he was invited to play the Legends League Cricket, currently taking place in India but had to pass the opportunity due to his eye surgery. The Legends League is a tournament featuring several cricket stars from yesteryear back in action, but as tempting as the offer was, De Villiers just could not risk damaging his eye.
