South Africa, June 11 South Africa captain Faf du Plessis broke his silence on Monday on the controversy surrounding A.B. de Villiers wanting to come out of retirement for the World Cup, saying he had told the swashbuckler that it was too late to consider the offer. Just after South Africa lost to India by six wickets on June 6, news came out that de Villiers had wanted to come out of retirement for the World Cup but his last-ditch offer was rejected by South Africa’s team management on the eve of the squad announcement. Du Plessis, who has not spoken on the issue earlier, chose to open up on Monday after his side’s match against the West Indies was washed out. He said de Villiers made the request to him on a phonecall when both of them were in India playing in the recent IPL. Du Plessis was playing for Chennai Super Kings and de Villiers for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
