BREAKING NEWS: De Villiers commits to Test comeback, quits as ODI captain

Updated: 

AB de Villiers has resigned as South Africa one-day international captain but declared himself available to make a Test comeback in October.

De Villiers has not played a Test since January 2016 and the prolific batsman has come in for criticism during an indefinite break from the longest format.

Proteas Test and Twenty20 captain Faf du Plessis this month stated he does not expect his predecessor to return to the Test arena, adding that he has "earned the right to do whatever he wants to".

De Villiers on Wednesday ended uncertainty over his future by stepping down as ODI skipper, while committing himself to play for his country in all three formats.
