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. Du Preez, on the other hand, will continue to play franchise cricket. However, I will continue to play the shorter format of the game in global leagues until I am blessed to become a mother and start my own family.
