Mignon du Preez retires from all international cricket

South Africa batter and former captain Mignon du Preez has announced her retirement from all international T20 cricket. She had already said she was stepping away from the longer formats after the one-day Women’s World Cup earlier this year, and now she’s retiring from T20 internationals, bringing the curtain down on a South Africa career that spanned just short of 16 years.

Du Preez, 33, will continue to be available for T20 franchise leagues though.

She finishes with 154 ODIs, 114 T20Is and one Test – in which she captained and scored a hundred – to her name. Her last appearance for South Africa was in the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August.

“Fifteen years of international cricket, WOW, what a blessing it has been,” du Preez said in a statement. “It’s never an easy decision to step away from something you love as much as I love cricket, but I know in my heart that the time is right for me to announce my retirement from all forms of international cricket.

“However, I will still continue to play the shorter format of the game in the global leagues until such a time that I am blessed to become a mom and start a family of my own.”
