"People want AB to play and I am no different": Du Plessis
AB de Villiers shocked the world game in May last year when, he retired from international cricket at the age of 34, to join the band of T20 cricket traveling from tournament to tournament. South African captain Faf du Plessis said on Monday that talks had begun aimed at getting star batsman AB de Villiers back into international cricket ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia in October next year. "People want AB to play and I am no different," Du Plessis said, "Those conversations have been happening two or three months ago," Du Plessis added, who was responding to a comment by new South African head coach Mark Boucher that he would welcome having De Villiers in his team. After being unveiled as South Africa's coach on Saturday, Boucher was ambushed into saying he wouldn't mind having De Villiers in the fold for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October and November next year.
The International Cricket Council has confirmed that there are investigations in the Qatar T10 League after the "interception of a number of known corruptors" in the league. It also confirmed that they were able to "disrupt corrupt activities" planned in the league. The General Manager of ICC's integrity unit, Alex Marshall, said in a statement: "The ICC sanctioned this event 12 months ago based on the sound information provided by the organizers. However substantial changes to both team ownership and the organizers just days prior to the event getting underway rang alarm bells for us and we applied additional investigative resources on the ground to address our concerns. "As a result, we have intercepted a number of known corruptors both in Qatar and globally and disrupted planned corrupt activity at the event. This has given rise to a number of new investigations for the ICC ACU team as we continue in our efforts to ensure cricket is a corruption-free sport."
