AB de Villiers will discuss his future availability for the Proteas with Cricket South Africa in August, and has hinted that the issue of who coaches South Africa from September could have a major bearing on his decision-making.
De Villiers has taken a leave of absence from Test cricket this year.
33-year-old has captained South Africa in all of their One Day Internationals since returning from injury – and led them in the three-match Twenty20 series in England – his unavailability in Test cricket has raised concerns about whether players should be allowed to pick and choose when they represent the Proteas.
Speaking about his future, de Villiers said on Sunday: “There are quite a few things that are changing in South African cricket at the moment, quite a few things we need to wait for. I don’t even think it’s in my hands what is going to happen. I will wait until the final decision on the coach and things like that are made, then I can also have a chat to CSA, to see where I am going to fit in.”
