AB de Villiers saying goodbye to international cricket is one of the most happening incidents to take place in 2018 so far. His announcement shocked the fans across the globe as nobody saw it coming. But soon everyone showered him with best wishes and congratulated for the illustrious career. However, his actions post-retirement have now come under the scanner as he used an Indian flag while promoting a wine brand.

ABD is currently enjoying his life away from the game and will now be seen playing for his domestic team Titans in the next season. Moreover, he will also feature in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for a few more years.

ABD recently promoted the Infinity wines brand which is now available in India. He posted an update about the same on his official Instagram handle. But what made the fans unhappy was the use of the Indian flag.

“Exciting times! A taste of our very own wines in Incredible India. If u get your hands on a bottle please let us know what u think @firstxiwines,” he captioned the post.

The former South African cricketer has immense fan-following in India and expectedly they weren’t pleased with him. The fans lashed out at De Villiers for disrespecting the Indian flag.
