AB De Villiers Steps Down From Test Captaincy
AB De Villiers who missed the important series against Australia due to his elbow surgery now stepped down from test captaincy as he has been ruled out of next series against SriLanka.
“The interests of the team must always outweigh the interests of any individual, including me,” de Villiers said. “It was a fantastic honour for me to be asked to captain the Test side but I have missed two series and I am still in doubt for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. Following the squad’s outstanding performances in Australia, it is clearly in the greater interests of the team that Faf du Plessis should be confirmed as the permanent Test captain.”
