AB de Villiers, star batsman of South African team and Royal Challengers Bangalore pulled out of the final of the Momentum One Day Cup -- domestic 50-overs meet due to back pain.
Cricket South Africa's official website confirmed that de Villiers was injured. "About to get underway in Centurion. The big team news from either team is that AB de Villiers misses out due to a back injury," cricet South Africa's official twitter handle @Official CSA tweeted.
The extent of De Villiers' injury has not been confirmed by either the player or the cricket board. It may well be the case that De Villiers is preserving himself for the million dollar league and didn't risk himself by appearing for the Titans in the final against Warriors played at the Super Sport Park in Centurion.
