South Africa captain AB de Villiers is not playing Test cricket for he has decided to focus on shorter formats this year. There has not been an official announcement from de Villiers on Test retirement but being away from Test cricket, for him, is the only solution to keep his fragile body away from injury.
ABD has had too many frequent injuries, not allowing him to focus on his cricket. He missed a huge chunk of IPL 2017 that made his team suffer a lot. Even during the Champions Trophy, he was facing minor injury issues.
As South Africa faces the heat in England in the ongoing Test series, De Villiers is busy keeping himself updated on social media. We tried looking into his Instagram account to find out what all he is doing these days.
And our finding was very interesting.
AB has been glued to the TV, supporting his favourite rugby team in the Super Rugby Tournament. No wonder a sportsman cannot get enough of sports even if he is at home.
The Superman of batting has also been promoting quite a few items through his Instagram account. Sometimes sauces, sometimes a watch.
And while at home, he also witnessed the birth of his second child on 17th July as well. Precious picture this is.
De Villiers has also been backing South Africa’s Test side in the ongoing Test series from home. He has been tweeting a lot during the Test series on a constant basis.
Here’s the proof:
Tough day for the boys at the Oval. Credit to England, but no doubt the guys will keep fighting. @tbavuma10 looking really good!

Surely, we want more of AB de Villiers on the field but his Instagram is no less exciting.
