Star South African batsman AB de Villiers has denied being approached to lead the national team hours after a TV channel quoted him as saying that an offer has been made by the country's cricket board.
 
"Reports suggesting Cricket SA have asked me to lead the Proteas are just not true. It's hard to know what to believe these days," de Villiers tweeted.
