AB De Villiers has decided to step down from South Africa's Test captaincy with immediate effect. Faf du Plessis has been confirmed by Cricket South Africa as his replacement.
De Villiers was appointed the captain in January, following Hashim Amla's resignation. He led the Proteas in two Test matches against England, before injury forced him to miss the series against New Zealand and Australia. 
De Villiers has also been ruled out of the three-Test series against Sri Lanka after failing to recover sufficiently from an elbow injury. Cricket South Africa Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat said, AB has always carried himself as a true team player and his decision to step down confirms his attitude to put the team first.
