AB de Villiers has stepped down as South Africa's one-day captain but could return to Test cricket having made himself available for all three formats from mid-October onwards following discussions with CSA.

De Villiers has not played Tests since January 2016, in the final match of the series against England, shortly after he had taken over the captaincy from Hashim Amla. He was named full-time captain later that year, but an elbow injury kept him out of series against New Zealand and Australia then he made himself unavailable for the format.

He returned to international action in January with the one-day side and captained South Africa in the Champions Trophy but they were unable to make it out of the group stage.
