I am surprised that nobody commented on the announcement a few days again by AB de Villiers fom all formats of cricket.
In dealing with this it reminds me how much he contributed as one of the greatest players ever to the game of cricket and he in a cricket sense reminded me of one of my favorite songs by A BBA:-
"So I say thank you for the music. For giving it to me. I've been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair. I wanna sing it out to everybody. What a joy, what a life, what a chance! Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing. Thanks for all the joy they're bringing. Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty."
I also remember a remark made by Vinot Kohli after an IPL match:-
" AB is the best cricket player in the world - but as good a player he is he is a better human being".
All I can add - may you have a wonderful life after cricket and be blessed with happiness.
