Weary De Villiers adds to South Africa’s worries

DURBAN, South Africa (AP) South Africa's AB de Villiers says he is being worn out by the amount of cricket he's playing, although a newspaper report that he might retire from tests after the current series against England was just ''rumors.''

De Villiers said in an interview with broadcaster SuperSport on Monday that he would look at sitting out some of South Africa's matches ''to keep myself fresh and to keep enjoying the game.''

De Villiers' comments came a day after a newspaper reported he and fast bowler Dale Steyn were considering giving up tests after the four-match series against England.

The 31-year-old De Villiers, a vital player for South Africa in all formats, said the plan was ''for me maybe not to play all kinds of cricket.''
