FORMER South African cricket captain Faf du Plessis announced Wednesday he had retired from Test cricket with immediate effect.
Du Plessis, 36, said in a statement on his Instagram account that he would continue to be available for one-day and Twenty20 internationals.
“The next two years are ICC T20 World Cup years. Because of this, my focus is shifting to this format and I want to play as much of it as possible around the world so that I can be the best player I can possibly be,” he said. ADVERTISING
Du Plessis captained South Africa in 36 of his 69 Test matches, winning 18 and losing 15.
