Gibbs seems unhappy with De Villiers

The absence of the star batsman AB de Villiers from the Test squad of South Africa has ignited a banter on Twitter, with his former teammates Herschelle Gibbs and Ashwell Prince.

Gibbs showed his disagreement with the statement Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis related to the future of De Villiers. Du Plessis said that de Villiers has “earned the right to do whatever he wants.” Gibbs was pointed out that Jacques Kallis was one of the greatest all-rounders of all time, never had such rights.

Former Proteas opener also shared that Kallis played for a longer period of time still didn’t get the chance to choose matches he wanted to play in.

This is when Prince came into the play with his views. He wondered of players like Hashim Amla will be given the same liberty. Prince was also surprised when former skipper Graeme skipper also backed de Villiers in this.

After Simon Harmer and Paul Harris expressed their thoughts, Prince once again hit back at them.

De Villiers played his last Test in January 2016. Since then the star batsman has played only limited-overs matches for the South Africana team. Recently after the conclusion of the series against England recently, Du Plessis gave hints that De Villiers might have played his final Test for the Proteas.
