AB to lead SA in ODIs and T20s

Royal Challengers AB de Villiers has been named the skipper of the South African skipper for both the limited versions of the game - ODIs and T20s.

In recent times, there has been a lot of churning going on with the South African national team. Gary Kirsten, the former South African international, who was one of the most successful coaches of the Indian team until very recently, has been named the coach of the Proteas team with Allan Donald as the bowling coach. With de Villiers' appointment as the skipper of the two versions of the game, the circle comes to near completion after Graeme Smith stepped down from the leadership role.
