De Villiers retired from international cricket in 2018 and has been linked with a return for more than a year now.
The player caused a groot opskop when it emerged that he availed himself to the team on the eve of last year’s ODI World Cup. It was decided not to include him in the end.
But with the T20 World Cup around the corner, talks have been ongoing with South Africa’s master blaster.
Chosen as one of the captains in the June 27 Solidarity Cup, De Villiers says of his future in national colours: “Decisions about involvement with CSA over the next 12 months haven’t been decided on yet.
“That will happen over the next few months, once we get back onto the park and once we start playing cricket again.
“I have had some discussions with [director of cricket] Graeme [Smith] and [coach] Bouch [Mark Boucher] in the past, in the last few months, but nothing has been decided yet.
“I think it would be silly to have made some decisions in the middle of the lockdown when nobody knows where we’re heading with cricket.
“I’m just excited to get out there and discussions will certainly open up over the next few months.”
