Johannesburg: South Africa swashbuckling batsman AB de Villiers, who took over as a stand-in captain following the resignation of Hashim Amla after the Durban Test, has expressed his desire to continue with his additional responsibility beyond the ongoing series against England.

Earlier, South Africa suffered a seven-wicket defeat in the third Test in Johannesburg to give England a series win and thereby losing the number one Test ranking to India.
But, the 31-year-old admitted that he enjoyed leading the side in the last match, adding that he would love to captain his Test side in future.
Describing the captaincy job as a 'big responsibility', De Villiers insisted that it was a great opportunity to have some influence on young players, Sport24 reported.
South Africa will now lock horns with England in the fourth and the final Test, a dead rubber, in Centurion starting from Friday.
