At one point in the video when AB said, “I have no plans to play overseas,” it was shock for many of us.
However, the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise has confirmed that ABD will continue playing for the side. In a conversation with an RCB fan, when asked whether AB would play in the IPL in future or not, the franchise wrote:
“Yes he will.”

Just days back, AB had ended his IPL campaign as the second highest run-getter for RCB. Although RCB was not able to make it to the Playoffs, de Villiers played with consistency as an individual.
He had also posted a video, for the RCB fans:
Thanks to all our fans for always standing right… https://t.co/Kms4q8FJIh

A huge thank you to my teammates, Cricket South Africa and all the supporters who have been behind me both in SA and around the world.”
