AB de Villiers steps down as SA T20 captain
AB de Villiers stepped down as the captain of South Africa's national T20 side. He will continue to lead the Proteas ODI team.
Faf du Plessis was named AB's replacement as captain of the T20 team.
Increase in his workload as wicketkeeper across all formats for SA combined with captaincy duties in the limited overs formats had been affecting the 29 year old batsman’s fitness and he was recently rested for the T20 series against New Zealand at home. SA coach Gary Kirsten said "AB has expressed that sometimes he feels that he is not sure about T20 cricket so we have decided to give Faf the leadership".
