Summary

  • It seems that the World Cup has moved down on the bucket list of AB de Villiers, after the South African batsman said that winning the coveted trophy is not his ultimate dream anymore.
  • It can be recalled that it was De Villiers’ drive to clinch the coveted trophy that he had decided to miss most of the Test matches in 2017 to switch his focus entirely on white-ball cricket in the lead up to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
  • And de Villiers said that though winning the World Cup trophy would be a bonus for him, not clinching the same is not going to define his career.
  • I feel it will be nice to win it, it’ll be a bonus, but if I don’t, it’s not going to define my career,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted the South African batsman, as saying.
  • De Villiers, who has been a member of three World Cup squads for South Africa in 2007, 2011 and 2015, came the closest to the coveted trophy in the last edition when he guided the national side to the semi-finals of the event.
