AB de Villiers, known for his mind-boggling and freakish batting ability, gave a huge jolt to world cricket yesterday with his sudden and untimely retirement from international cricket. During his illustrious career playing for South Africa, he gave the cricket lovers around the world many memorable moments of joy and happiness to savour.
De Villiers enthralled everyone with his batting at the international game, scoring 8765 runs in 114 Tests, 9577 runs in 228 ODIs and 1672 runs in 78 T20Is for his country. The Indian Bollywood isn't immune from his magic.
Yesterday the social media network Twitter erupted with many of Bollywood actors and actresses' tweets wishing the great man a happy post retirement life.
Here are some best tweets..
In life, what we do to positively impact the lives of others has greater meaning than what we accomplish for ourselves. You’ve managed to do both beautifully & always with such grace & integrity. Wishing you & Danielle a blessed, happy life ahead ???? @ABdeVilliers17 @DanielleDV27— Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) May 23, 2018
Sunil Gavaskar once said, ‘Retire when people ask why, not when they ask why not?’ Still, the @ABdeVilliers17 retirement is too early. Today sports science doesn’t care abt chronological age. It’s abt your performance age. By those metrics ABD’s in his late 20s. And what talent.— Rahul Bose (@RahulBose1) May 23, 2018
