This news is likely to hit the ground within days. According to the news source from Karnataka Suvarna News and News18, this has been delivered. The process is just a short matter of announcement.

It is expected that the announcement will be one of the biggest tremors in the Cricket World.

Virat Kohli was leading the franchise since 2013 but they haven’t managed to win the tournament even once ever since the Indian Premier League (IPL) has started.

Based on the recent tourney, Kohli’s performance was enough above the par. Even, foreigners praised this guy for not only for his consistency he has shown but also for his batting styles.

They considered him as the best batsman right now in the world. But, talking about his captaincy, it may be said that he had a little bit stuck back in this field. His captaincy luck hasn’t shown anything of a good yield. So, the team management was quite worried regarding this. Making the news of the availability of AB de Villiers in 2019 IPL confirmed, they have shown interest in him to become the captain of their side.

If indeed AB de Villiers is appointed the captain, it remains to be seen if he will be able to lead them to the elusive trophy.

De Villiers who is trying to make the most of his post-retirement days. He recently announced that he will take part in the Pakistan Premier League (PSL).

“Pakistan Super League has grown into one of the top T20 tournaments in the world and I’ve really enjoyed watching PSL matches in recent years. Pakistan Super League is a league that has given Pakistan so much to cheer about. I certainly can’t wait and I’ll see you there.” he said in a video message.
