Meanwhile, Ottis Gibson said that the people are more interested in having AB de Villiers in the World Cup than the batsman himself.

"The timing of this revelation raises serious questions".

"At no point in the year that he had retired did he make himself available for selection".

View this post on Instagram " So basically everything started with finance", said Akhtar. "If you indeed have to make money then pick and choose correctly but keep your country as the priority.You wanted to loot the whole mela (festival) and become breaking news by coming into the team but that is not right", the man formerly known as Rawalpindi express said. I think when he took this decision, he did it looking at his finances and economics.

De Villiers' offer had remained under wraps until after South Africa's World Cup campaign plunged into crisis with a third successive defeat against India on Wednesday.

However, he told captain Faf du Plessis and coach Ottis Gibson that he would be willing to come out of retirement to play in the World Cup if they needed his services. The money will come today or tomorrow but you heed the call of making money and ignore the World Cup.

Asked how the situation with De Villiers developed at his pre-match press conference in Southampton on Saturday, Gibson revealed he had spoken to the 35-year-old and told him he should have made it clear he was available earlier in the year. The news leaked out some days ago that the de Villiers, regarded as one of the finest batsmen of his generation, had made such an offer to Cricket South Africa (CSA) which was rejected by the board. Kerry Packer happened and it was wrong. "I believe if he wanted to be here, he would be here, but he is somewhere doing what he wants to do", Gibson said. Now you want to come back, it is not more than a gimmick.

Zondi said it would be unfair to other players to accede to De Villiers' belated request.

"Jab aapne faisla kar liya hai tab banda mard ka baccha banta hai aur mard ka baccha tab banta hai jab paise chor deta hai (Be a man and stick to your decision and that is only possible once you let go of the lure of money)", Akhtar concluded.

South Africa has failed to leave a mark at World Cup 2019 as they have lost three consecutive matches. He made a bad move by retiring early and secondly when you retired then stick to your decision now, ' he added. "Forget about your country".

'It's very sad that you have chosen money over your country'. "After so many years of service to your country, these were the last two years and people would have remembered you fondly had you bowed out respectfully".
