The whole cricket fraternity has been reacted to the retirement of the ace South African cricketer Ab de Villiers. Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar also followed suit as he wished the RCB man all the success in life after cricket.

Sachin took to social media and tweeted, “Like your on-field game, may you have 360-degree success off the field as well. You will definitely be missed, @ABdeVilliers17. My best wishes to you!”

Earlier in the day, De Villiers, in a video on his Twitter handle, stunned the cricketing world by announcing that he was calling time on his career with South Africa.

De Villiers said in the video that he was “tired.” “It’s not about earning more somewhere else, it’s about running out of gas and feeling that it is the right time to move on. Everything comes to an end. To the cricket fans around South Africa and the World, thank you for your kindness and generosity, and today, for your understanding,” he said.

The South African has just completed his stint in this season’s IPL where he turned out for the Royal Challengers Bangalore but could not make it to the knockout stages of the tournament. His last game for South Africa was the final Test of a controversial and gruelling series against Australia.
