Cape Town - AB de Villiers will be releasing his autobiography in November.
The book titled AB: The Autobiography will cover events from his childhood and schooling at Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool (Affies) through to his present successes, Pan Macmillan South Africa said.
“The reader will be transported to the backyard of AB’s childhood home where he first learnt to play cricket with his brothers, and will be introduced to colourful characters and sportsmen along the way,” the book publisher said in a press release.
“The autobiography will also explore AB’s interests in music and business and how he pursues these alongside his international cricket career.”
De Villiers said he was looking forward to telling his story.
“For me, playing for South Africa through the past 11 seasons has been a fantastic privilege, from my debut against the West Indies right through to all the drama of the 2015 Cricket World Cup semi-final against New Zealand a few months ago, and I am looking forward to telling my story,” he said.
The autobiography will be released in English and Afrikaans locally, and simultaneously in English in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and India.
