Mr.360 AB de Villiers has come up with some interesting points as well as some future plans in an interview with Gaurav Kapur on his famous talk-show on Youtube. ABD was last seen in action in the recently concluded IPL where he had an outstanding season with the bat as he amassed 442 runs in 13 games at a strike rate of 154 which included five half-centuries. However, it was yet another forgettable season for his team Royal Challengers Bangalore as they not only failed to qualify for the knockouts but also finished as wooden spooners i.e. at the bottom of the points table. What is more disappointing for the cricket fans is that AB will not be seen in the upcoming World Cup in the United Kingdom as he had announced his retirement from international cricket in May last year.

However, during the talk show, when Gaurav Kapur had asked him whether he will come back to play in the next World Cup, the 35-year-old said that he would definitely play if MS Dhoni plays the 2023 World Cup as well.

"How old will I be? 39! I will come back if MS (Dhoni) is still around. If I'm still good enough, who knows eh?", said de Villiers.

While there is no doubt that both MSD and ABD are two of the fittest athletes in World Cricket, still there are remote chances of Dhoni (37) who is already featuring in his fourth World Cup will play the quadrennial event in 2023 even though it is being in India.

Meanwhile, de Villiers also showered praises on his RCB skipper, team-mate and competitor Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma and talked about their rapport.

“We are neighbours. If it wasn’t for the mosquitoes here, we would’ve left our doors open and probably would’ve shared a big room. Anushka’s here all the time, my family is there, the kids are running around. The kids were knocking on his door, early in the morning waking him up. He would let them in and would have coffee together. They were so good with the kids. We spent hours in the pool together, everyone just jumping and diving, and they’re so chilled."

At the same time, the entertaining batsman also added that Virat is a caring human being.

“I’m scared of saying anything to him now because. If I say like, “Oh, I like your shoes.” The next minute he organizes me those shoes. I’m like, “Virat, just stop it”. He looks after everyone. I was like, “My phone is flat again.” “Oh, you need a power bank.” There you go. Now it’s mine. He’s ridiculous, man.  I told him I like coffee the other day. Now I’m getting an espresso machine- he’s ordered on Amazon.  It’s being delivered tomorrow. "
