‘Made a terrible mistake…’: AB de Villiers takes back his statement on Virat Kohli’s absence

There’s been a big fuss around former South African cricket star AB de Villiers recently. He accidentally shared some wrong info about why Indian cricket champ Virat Kohli wasn’t playing in the ongoing England Test series.

De Villiers, who’s good friends with Kohli, felt bad about his mistake and said sorry for spreading false news about Kohli’s personal life.

“Family always comes first, like I said on my YouTube show. I messed up and shared some wrong info. Nobody really knows what’s going on. All I can do is hope he’s doing okay,” de Villiers explained in an interview with Dainik Bhaskar.

At first, de Villiers thought Kohli and his wife, Anushka Sharma, might be expecting their second child. He thought that’s why Kohli wasn’t playing in the early matches against England.

But later, de Villiers realized he was wrong. He said sorry for causing confusion and admitted he was spreading fake news.

Even after de Villiers cleared things up, people still wonder why Kohli isn’t playing. Some say he might miss more matches in Rajkot and Ranchi. The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) hasn’t given any official updates, so nobody’s sure what’s going on with Kohli and what it means for the team.

De Villiers wants everyone to remember how important family is. He hopes people will support Kohli during this uncertain time.
