South African wicketkeeper batter Mignon du Preez has announced her retirement from ODIs and Tests but will continue to play T20s, the country’s cricket board said on Thursday.
du Preez, 32, has made 154 ODI appearances for her national side, scoring 3760 runs at an average of 32.98.
She also played one test for South Africa against India in 2014 and captained the team across all formats between 2011 and 2016.
“I feel the time is right to announce my retirement from the longer format of the game and focus my attention on T20 cricket going forward. Thus, I decided to retire from ODI cricket at the completion of our recent World Cup in New Zealand” she said in her statement.
In the recently concluded Women’s World Cup, she went on to amass 161 runs in eight matches, including a half-century against India in a crunch league game.
