AB de Villiers wants to play for the Proteas in this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
Having retired from international cricket in 2018, there has been talk that De Villiers might return to help South Africa in their quest to win their first ever ICC trophy.
And after making his debut in Australia’s Big Bash on Tuesday, De Villiers says: “There’s a lot that needs to happen before that becomes reality, I would love to.
“I’ve been talking to [coach Mark] Boucher, [Director of Cricket] Graeme Smith and [captain] Faf [du Plessis] back home.
“We are all keen to make it happen. It’s a long way away still and plenty can happen - there’s the IPL coming, I’ve still got to be in form at that time. I’m thinking of throwing my name in the hat and hoping everything will work out.
“It’s not a guarantee, I don’t want to disappoint myself or other people, so for now I’m just going to try and keep a low profile, play the best possible cricket I can and we’ll see what happens towards the end of the year.”
The T20 World Cup starts in October.
