Southamp­ton: SA cap­tain Faf du Plessis has bro­ken his si­lence on the con­tro­versy sur­round­ing AB de Vil­liers’ want­ing to come out of re­tire­ment for the World Cup. “He (de Vil­liers) didn’t come to me. It was just a con­ver­sa­tion, a phone call the night be­fore the team got an­nounced. I said to him ‘I think it is too late but I will check in with the coach and the se­lec­tors the next morn­ing to get their opin­ion on it as the squad was al­ready an­nounced or picked’,” du Plessis said.
