AB de Villiers Suggests Virat Kohli’s Farewell Season in South Africa

AB de Villiers, the South African cricket legend and former teammate of Virat Kohli at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), hints at the possibility of Kohli playing his final season in South Africa. The speculation arises as India prepares for a multi-format series in the Rainbow Nation, with Kohli indicating his absence from the white-ball leg but expressing intent to join for the Test matches.

De Villiers, now the brand ambassador of SA20, the premier T20 competition in South Africa, envisions a grand farewell for Kohli in the cash-rich league. Although he hasn’t discussed this with Kohli directly, he has engaged with former India players like Robin Uthappa and RP Singh about the potential reunion in the T20 format in South Africa.

“I think it would be very possible to get Virat over here. Maybe for his final season, we’ll give him a wonderful farewell for the end of his career,” says AB de Villiers.

While the idea of Kohli’s farewell season in South Africa remains speculative, de Villiers expresses his strong connection with RCB and leaves the door open for a potential return to the team, either as a player or in a coaching role.

“I hope so. I mean, my heart is with the RCB. I’ve played there for many, many years. I’ve got a very good connection with the fans of Bangalore, and I’ll always be appreciative for all the support and love over the years. I can’t guarantee anything, but I would absolutely love to see myself in the RCB colors again in the future,” says AB de Villiers.

As the cricketing world anticipates the next move for both Kohli and de Villiers, the prospect of Kohli’s farewell season in South Africa adds an intriguing layer to the upcoming series.
