South Africa’s Pretorius retires from international cricket
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South Africa allrounder Dwaine Pretorius retired from international cricket on Monday.
The 33-year-old Pretorius played three tests, 27 one-day internationals and 30 Twenty20 games for the Proteas and became a limited-overs specialist toward the end of his career.
Pretorius said he would continue playing in domestic T20 leagues around the world.
“Being a free agent will help me achieve the goal of being the best short format player I can be,” he said in a statement. “By doing this I will be able to have a better balance in my career and family life.”
Pretorius made his international debut in 2016 and has the record for the best bowling figures by a South African in T20 internationals with his 5-17 against Pakistan in 2021.
