In fact, Gibson was not in a mood to entertain question on AB de Villiers. A lot had happened since then. De Villiers had retired from global cricket in May 2018, saying he was exhausted.

The former pacer also cited that AB de Villiers preferred the lucrative domestic contracts instead of making himself available for the World Cup. Pollock, the South African pace legend, also said if de Villiers would have been found available for the World Cup 2019 a little earlier, it would have been better for the team. However, he chose the IPL, PSL and announced his retirement well before the World Cup.

'So basically everything started with finance, ' said Akhtar. I think when he took this decision, he did it looking at his finances and economics. In a recent harsh worded video on his YouTube channel, Akhtar questioned the timing of AB de's proposal. We can talk about AB all we want but he's not here and he cannot help us.

AB de Villiers decision to reverse his retirement was barred by the Cricket South Africa management and it evoked a certain debate between cricket fraternity, fans and media. But he spoke to Faf, I think they were in the IPL or whatever and then Faf phoned me to tell me what was going on, and then at some point sometime after that he then phoned me just to ask.to say that he. "The money will come today or tomorrow but you make the call of making money and ignore the World Cup". "If you indeed have to make money then pick and choose correctly but keep your country as the priority.You wanted to loot the whole mela (festival) and become breaking news by coming into the team but that is not right", the man formerly known as Rawalpindi express said.

Gibson also said that he had spoken to de Villiers on the day that the latter had made his retirement announcement.

"Suddenly we've come to the World Cup and we've had one bad week, and AB is the saviour, but the guy is retired, he's made his decision, and we have to live with the decision that he's made". "But I think the management was correct in their stand", said the 43-year-old.

"Of course it's come as a distraction, but to me more distracting is the level of our playing".

"I was offered tons and millions of dollars from ICL but I bluntly told them no". For half that money, I did go and play in IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders and received a lot of love from the people there. "Be a man and stick to your decision and that is only possible once you let go of the lure of money". "After so many years of service to your country, these were the last two years and people would have remembered you fondly had you bowed out respectfully".
