South African star batsman AB de Villiers has announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect, stating, via a video message, that he had "run out of gas."

The 34-year-old batsman said 'the time is right' for him to hang up his boots, bringing a close to a stellar 14-year career.

"I have decided to retire from all international cricket with immediate effect," de Villiers said today (May 23).

"After 114 Test matches, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals, it is time for others to take over. I have had my turn, and to be honest, I am tired," de Villiers said.

De Villiers finishes his career with a staggering 20,014 international runs (8765 in Tests, 9577 in ODIs and 1672 in T20Is) and signs off with a batting average over 50 in both Tests (50.66) and ODIs (53.50).
