“Dr Vijay Mallya, chairman of Royal Challengers Bangalore,my team in the Indian Premier League, has recently secured an interest in theTridents and I am very much looking forward to joining forces with him inanother part of the world."

“I’ve had a careful look at my schedule and am lookingforward to the next few months. For players in my position, it is important tofind a balance between playing international cricket and participating in thevarious T20 leagues around the world.”

But De Villiers assured Proteas fans of his commitment tothe national team.
