AB de Villiers, the frontman of South Africas cricket team, shocked not only the cricket fraternity but everyone across the world as he announced retirement from all formats of cricket after an illustrious career of 14 years. And just like his many other fans, his followers in the entertainment business are disheartened about not seeing the ace-cricketer back on the field. Pari actor Anushka Sharma who has a special connection to the world of cricket, courtesy, her husband and Indian skipper Virat Kohli, took to Twitter to wish De Villiers and his wife Danielle a happy life ahead.

Writing highly of the international cricketer, Anushka, in her tweet, wrote, “In life, what we do to positively impact the lives of others has greater meaning than what we accomplish for ourselves. Youve managed to do both beautifully & always with such grace & integrity. Wishing you & Danielle a blessed, happy life ahead ? @ABdeVilliers17 @DanielleDV27.” Virat and De Villiers friendship is no news for the cricket fans. The two cricket stars have a mutual admiration for each others game. Both of them play for IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore and presumably, Anushka has also known the South African star quite closely.

Other than Anushka, Arjun Kapoor, Saiyami Kher, a cricket enthusiast and television actor Nakuul Mehta also applauded the cricketer for giving the audience great cricketing experience. Arjun tweeted, “Congratulations @ABdeVilliers17, what a spectacularly proud cricketing career youve had! Your game will be talked about for years to come. Wish you all the best for your future endeavors. #ABDevilliers.”
